Thank-you Debbie,Javier, Judy, Damian and Bernard. Debbie, the only manipulation involved was using the "flood filter" ,by flaming pear, to create the beautiful reflection. I absolutely love the effects this filter creates! Thanks again for the truly gracious comments. #57570

Yes. Flaming Pear's flood is nice! I submitted a similiar shot with Peony submerged. Good job, Richard. #57773

excuse my ignorance, but what is Flaming Pear's flood filter? I don't have it in Photoshop. -Debbie #57791

It is a plug-in filter, Debbie. Plug-ins are add on software filters compatible with Photoshop that you must purchase seperatly. When you download them into the plug-in folder of your PS program, they appear in the same column as the regular filters that come with PS. I highly recommend nik color effects pro 1.0, as the one indispensible plug-in. It can enhance and correct almost every shot you take. #58022

Thanks for the info Lem-I'll definately have to look into that! Can you download from the internet somewhere or do you purchase it at a store? (again, excuse my ignorance ;) -Debbie #58050
