I couldn't believe the breath-taking stillness that morning when I got up to this beautiful (altered) view. It was ... well, spellbinding (after I grabbed my cammera. LOL)
My inspiration for the LO came from Fall Into Enchantment by Jo Brenneman and her reference to a LO by Ro called Look Up.
I had fun playing with the effects and filters menus and getting around them a little more easily. I never did find out after the fact which effect I finally ended up using on the photo. I'm sure it is listed in properties or image info somewhere. I'm not sure I used the same techniques as Ro and Jo but I think I like the results. The thing I worked on the most was trying to soften the beveled edges of the photos. I know I will try this technique again and will want the edges to be more subtle.
