    Fantastic colors! Great energy and motion captured here!

  • Thanks, Gene – the before-crop version of this one had just one intrusive leaf in the upper right. Decided to make something artsy out of this, sans foliage. Billow on, I say!

    Fantastic colours Sheila, it looks like a water colour painting!!

  • That was what I was going for when I fiddled with this – but in the end, apart from some cropping & a little tweaking of saturation, I didn’t do much to this. Thanks, Shaun.

    Sweeeet! Nicely done, Sheila!

  • Both sides now…. but why stop with only two sides…? Clouds are multi-multi-multi-dimensional, after all. Thanks, Oxley of Oxley.

    Now this looks to me like a fabulous water colour painting & it deserves a frame. The Black Border adds bite to the fabulous colours in this quality artwork Shiela dont yah think :o)

    Splendid seeing and composing Sheila. Not only is this ethereal and empreal, but celestial too. It’s just out of this world. :)) >Ron<

  • Thank you, friend Ron! Very nicely put, & a true compliment. Thanks also for the favorite. I’m beginning to think I should make wallpaper from this – the kind you put on the wall, that is. Too much of it would be overwhelming, but I can think of a couple of small spaces that would benefit….. Always thinking, not necessarily for the better….

    well done i bet you enjoyed gettin this end result from the original ..time consuming but worth every second pal

  • Many thanks again, pal Joak. I was really happy with this result, but I can’t take all the credit you would give me… see my reply to your comment on this one for details! It did take a while to get it just where I wanted it, but I had quite a bit to work with.
