I'm finding it very hard to choose between the two images of Molly's cat. I do know how images can look washed out on BP but I actually really like this one! They are both very well done and I love the effects! #3498199

Very interesting and stunning eyes look, Helen. There is another way of doing without PS which I am trying out now. I make my own vignette using matt plastic sheet and cut like shark teeth around the flame ,place infront of camera like filter. In our local photo contest they prefer that the photo not edited so I am trying out this way.
