Thanks, Carla, Jessica, Adilson, Melissa, Karen, and Noel! Somewhere in my gallery you can see the origional. I think this version has a lot more going for it :-) #3365965

Nadya Johnson September 27, 2006

Great work, Steve! I don't know what "digital slide sandwich" is, but it worked! Checked both images: this is brighter, more colorful. VERY nice! I liked the original a lot, but this is even better! Gorgeous shot! #3372708

Steve Mescha September 28, 2006

Thanks Denis and Nadya! The technique is simply blending a blurred image over the origional and fine tuning the blending mode. Lots of different ways to get the final result :-) #3379035
