Wind Child

Uploaded: February 05, 2006


I entered this back in 2004. It is one of my favorites. I didn't have the knowledge of using Photoshop back then. Tonight, at my sister's suggestion, re-entered into the contest! This time, I used PS to adjust curves and colors to the sky and re-enter into the contest!
