Just so long as you don't say "Spring is blooming out all over", in which case I'm reaching for my baseball bat.

Re: Spring Explosion

Craig... Great shot. Love the darks and light contrasts.

Masked yellows then Cutout filter a couple times on the reverse of the mask. PST and AHB.

Re: Spring Explosion

lol, gary... i'd never do that to ya

jordan, i like that. looks like something from one of my filter forge filters

dee dee, what do you call that texture you used there? it reminds me of a type of thick, absorbent paper used in water colors. and i like the overall effect and edgeing. very nice.

nice one, palms and i really like that 2nd one; very clever

peter, i've watched your talent grow and your style develop. this one is spot on. very well done!

nice, yelhsaneerg
