Struggling To Stay Beautiful by 

As we age, we struggle to keep the vibrancy and beauty of our youth. The dark background represents time closing in. The daffodil represents the struggle to stay beautiful.

Digitally altered photo with texture and other enhancements.

I am happy to share my vision with you and I hope that it touches you in some small way.

    Carol, There is nothing wrong with elements, A recent version is better though if you have it. Not that my work is great but nearly everything ive done is easily achieved with elements :-)

    I have been thinking about upgrading to Elements 8 but by reading the info about it, I couldn’t see that it had that much improvement.
