hi love your photo I love the one similar to this one too. Did you put the background in on photoshop or is it the sky from the real world. #4841371

Wendy Bristol September 25, 2007

Thanks, Meghan. The sky is "from the real world". :O)

The only thing I did in photoshop was to clone out a few tree tops in the bottom of the frame and boost the saturation in the sky. #4843210
