Topaz Sky



This image was digitally enhanced with a plug-in filter for Photoshop called Topaz Adjust.  You can find a free 30-day trial here.  It's great fun to play around with, but it needs a light touch.  I think I may have overdone it a little...  :)

I like this effect. I wish more plug ins were available for Macs! Almost makes me want to get a PC. ...I said ALMOST. ;-)

Mary - it's beautiful but maybe a little ominous looking :)

Very interesting effect. It almost looks like an underwater shot with ripples on the surface.

Thanks, Mary! I guess I made a bad assumption. I WILL download and try it. ;-)

Amazing. A reminder..as always..of what a wonderful world we live in.

Looks like some ancient element, once molten, now cooled into an intricate natural design - intriguing!

It looks like ripples in water or is that intent? Very striking and I quite like it.

I love the texture of the clouds, and the way there is just a hint of near branches on the left.
Wonderful!
