Uploaded: December 22, 2004


Filtered in PS. I've been digging through the "archives" lately. It really is like looking in the attic and finding things you'd long forgotten about.

I love, love , love the colors in this- I agree it would look amazing enlarged and framed. It looks like the gloxinias are frantically trying to find someone to adopt them- the one in the foreground is begging," Please, please take me home!" #991388

Pat - this is just spectacular!!! Coming up with this wonderfully colourful treasure made your 'archaeological dig' MOST worthwhile!! :-) Great 'frosted glass' PS effect...and I love that you left the centre of the main flower un-'effected'!! ;-) I agree with Sharon though - "I (also) think it would have been great even without PS"!! A VERY deserving POTD, Pat - and many congratulations!! :-) #1100373
