Great results Craig last one is my favourite, the fourth one my grandsons favourite ( he really liked it ) ( and Lyle's mother of pearl)
The first one Craig would look great as a reflection of the original

Re: Iris

thanks, lyle

i'm sure there has to be some more ice in FF. i know there's lots of glass filters. maybe i can adapt one to ice.

well, never disparage hand work, regardless of the time. it's been my experience that too much filter and not enough hand tends to end up with something a bit... sterile, for lack of a better term. if i dont do a smudge or restoration or something that requires some hand work, i tend to produce junk. it's like putting life into an image when you do it manually where the filter is mostly mechanical. that make sense? well, it makes sense to me

i dont think i've ever seen anyone attempt a mother of pearl effect before. very cool!

thanks, palms

yep, i like the fourth best also. i may put that one in the gallery.

and thanks to your grandson, as well

and yes, i think it looks more a reflection than ice.

Re: Iris

Still fun to try to get filters to do all the work though. FF is extremely powerful and it's still on my wish list. Anyway, glad you liked the MoP. I like this one of Marilyn much better.

Re: Iris

very interesting, lyle. again, i've never seen that attempted before. it makes me wonder if i could create something similar in FF. boy, i'd have to do some research. let's see, google mother of pearl images, then do...

Re: Iris

After looking at all the renderings in this thread, I thought I'd try another one to the mix.
