A big huge congratulations on this spectacular finalist!! Good luck in the next round!! #579284

Thank You Revonda! Was just beginning trying out filters and such in a couple of programs when I did this one. It's a true macro I took at the river. The colors are real. I cropped, added a twirl filter and frame and that's about it, with exception to some auto tuning. This was just a fun shot to do!
Thanks again for commenting, I appreciate it! :) #3754263

This is so strange, it just keeps grabbing me #3757626

Thank You! I really enjoyed capturing the original shot, but then to be able to play with it was fun as well. I was trying to do something a tad different with a typical insect/macro shot, and I had not seen this done before.
Again, Thank you for commenting. It was a nice surprize to find this morning!
