Thanks so much Jeff and Connie! This was a "drive-by shooting" - didn't want to face Mr. Guard Dog! He looked serious about his work - eventhough the building was abandoned.... :o) #2865038

Love this effect, Judy, and the photo itself is superb. Never heard of 'buzz' before but now I have to check into it! Love your gallery! #2910730

Thanks so much Janet! The Buzz Simplifier is a neat tool -- I usually just use Simplifier One. Here's the link to get it -- you can get a limited-use free download to see if you like it -- I did! And then I bought the filter. Fun stuff! #2910895

Those yellow lab guard dogs are dangerous. They are likely to lick you to death if you get too close :-) #3066915
