It looks like a Japanese painting; deserves to be "watercolored" at Kinko's! #159007

Beautiful image, Pat!! #716330

Lovely photo Pat. The colors are very nice and the shot is very calming.
Good job. #716355

Thank you, Jose, Colette and Isabel.

Jose: I printed this out on textured water color paper on my Epson 2200 set to watercolor paper and got that "watercolored" look without PS. It looked good, too.

Isabel: I turned in this shot at my nature photography class at Morton Arboretum. Everyone in the class liked the image, but no one expressed it as "calming". I like that! #716738

This is lovely with the soft colors and reflection, Pat, and you captured a very zen-like mood here as well! #718300

Thanks, Carol. This shot has really gotten a variety of descriptions. It's really interesting! #718327
