To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


The inspiration for this was the new CD, "Into The Blue", by Nicholas Payton. I simply took a photo from my "Clouds" album and layered a photo of Nicholas Payton taken at the San Jose Jazz Concert. I chose Overlay and used a soft eraser to blend him in with the clouds.
