Very nice, Barbara! I like the contrasting colours, composition, and using the soft filter was great idea as well.

GJC from Kyoto (京都), Japan

This is very lovely. I really like the soft overlay, which gives a pleasing effect. Nice work!

7 Aug 2009 12:29pm

@GJC: Thank you so much. The soft overlay cuts some of the harsh light. I was right on the 'edge' of 'good iight/bad light' here, but when the light isn't as good, there are alternatives!

Anita from West Nottingham, United States

Lovely colors. I especially like the blurred BG and the colors.
