Very creative...I love the way everything is so soft looking and the lighthouse is just sharp and stands out. Well done!

  I'd be glad to see the original too! I've created an IR action that I use...did you have a specific method? Very ice conversion.

Thank you so much Nicole, Jill, and Richard! I'm glad you stopped by, thanks for the kind comments. Richard, I am uploading the original, and I will send you an email regarding the method I used (as it is a little lengthy). Have a great day everyone!

  Alana, that's pretty slick. I've never played around with IR. Is it hard to do? CAn you send me the e-mail you sent to Richard?

  Alana this is a beautiful shot. I hate to ask you to send me an email to but I am interested. The original shot, while beautiful too, pales in comparison to the one submitted. Great job!
