Thanks Patricia and Craig for your kind words.

This is a great picture to work with, and I've really enjoyed looking at all the varying interpretations of it. So many different ideas.

Look forward to seeing more.

Thanks, Swampy, for putting this thread in motion. You've set everybody's creative juices flowing.

I went abstract on this one. Used Impressionist and added texture in CS2. I'd be embarrassed to tell you how little time it took.

Oh yes; like this effect too.

Yup; quite uncreative tonight. Glad that I have old friends that I can depend on for these times.
