WOW, this is spooky - great effect!! #265352

Donna J. Eaton June 18, 2005

Thank you Bianca! You know I added the softness and the blue tone but I didn't add the "spirits". They were actually in the photo and really showed up when I added the softness to the image! :-o #1486668

Kate Jackson June 18, 2005

Is this really at night Donna? I hope you won't there alone!! How strange but I like it!! #1486675

Bianca B. Steinfeldt June 18, 2005

You really added great up! The softness and the lighting it looks like a smoke cloud is passing by. #1486723

Donna J. Eaton June 18, 2005

Thanks Kate. It was taken during the day and I was there with a group of photographers...thank goodness. It was during one of the mentor trips with Popular Photography. The "spirits" showed up after using one of Craig's Shadow Soft actions to add the atmosphere. I have attached teh original. You can barely see the "spirits" in the original. #1486757
