This will probably shock you Jane, coming from me, but I think I like the edited shot even better than the origional :-) The origional is a great shot, but the edited version is so unique. I'm glad you're experimenting! #1474884

Jane Summa June 17, 2005

Thank you ALL for your comments..both, on the entry and the original. I find all of your comments very interesting, informative & constructive. Steve's right, I am experimenting and I thought after the wind and swirl the brick effect gave this image a stronger appeal.
