I took different views of my parasol for this one added a texture a frat and changed the hues then finshed with a radial blur.

Hi Amanda,

What a superb image! Obviously great vibrant colours too. Is this one shot of several parasols or several shots of one parasol combined? And is it one those that normally go in cool cocktail drink?

Anyway, nice work! Greetings from the other side of the Tasman Sea (noticed you were from NZ). #5267637
