    Hello Joan! How are you? I expect it’s really hot where you are at the moment . It’s raining cats and dogs here in Wales, UK!! LOL!! I love this image. It has the simple beauty of a Japanese print. Very Zen. I could look at this picture for hours. Great for meditation and lowers my blood pressure nicely. Brilliant! Have a great weekend! XXXXXX

    This looks like a plate of hammered silver!

  • Thank you, Machandel. I was very surprised when the added effects brought up a sparkle, almost like it’s starting to rust.

    Wonderful! It looks like an artwork from the 1970’s, when they used to etch scenes in foil. I miss those. Good luck in the challenge!

  • Thanks! I put an effect over it and do you think I remember which one? LOL! I’ve never been able to reproduce the sparkle look. This will always be an original. :)

    I have some fractals like that, that I haven’t been able to duplicate. Unfortunately, I lost all my files when I reformatted my harddrive.
