Lisa J. Boulden level-classic February 05, 2008

What uplifting comments!
Thank you, Dianna, Bill, Kimi, Srividya, Kitty, and Frank!

Srividya, to achieve this glow, this is what I did: (I'll try to remember as best as possible.)
-I started with a sharp capture of a vibrant dahlia I spotted at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco.
-Adjusted shadow/highlights in CS2
-decreased background exposure
-Fractalius effect plug-in
-surface blur
-adjust exposure settings
-applied Neat Image plug-in

☺ Peace, Lisa
