dee dee,

i like it, but i think there's something a bit off on it. the plants in the foreground look like they shld be OVER the heron, not behind. something about the depth and relative sizes of the plants and heron there that makes me think so. otherwise, pretty incredible.

yup, we have great blues here in kentucky also. the folks have a regular fisherman on their lake that comes in and wades the shores.

You're right, Craig. The perspective is off, but If I made the bird smaller he wouldn't get his glory. LOL...

Artistic license!!!

Abstract attempt... Duplicate layer (1), rotate canvas, add blank layer and apply filter texturizer (set blending layer to linear dodge), duplicate again layer (1) and add a layer style (drop shadow, inner shadow, color overlay), duplicate layer and apply a layer style (drop shadow, inner shadow, color overlay) and set blending mode to soft light.
Enjoy!

Staying with the abstract theme...

Layer rendering (see attached Layer Palette screen shot):
* Mike Finn's Executive Toy PS action was used on another copy of the Background.
* Background duplicated. Blend mode = Luminosity
* I recently acquired the NIK Photo Abstract plugin, that has some funky filters. One filter, Pop Art, renders a unique effect similar to Photoshop's Posterize command, but more like looking at a contour map. This filter was applied to a copy of the Background. Blend mode = Linear burn
* Photoshop's Texturizer > Sandstone applied to a layer filled with 50% gray. Blend mode = Overlay
