The optimist and the pessimist! I say it's neither rising nor sinking, but holding its own very well. :)

Nice image, Colleen.

This is lovely. I have seen alot of images like this with the water reflection on the lower frame.
Is this a program? How did you do this? Thanks for any helpful hints. #4685394

Colleen Farrell August 23, 2007

Thanks, Mary! It's a flood filter from Flaming Pear. If you Google Flaming Pear, you can go to their site and download a demo to use for free for 30 days. The purchase price is pretty cheap, something like $30. #4688565
