I think I used several Topaz apps, but I can't remember them all-lots of different changes in colors, contrasts-hoping this works as the original was Ok but not totally to my liking. I have a feeling this will morph a few times yet!

Thanks for any C&C.

love the subtlety in this image Cindy. the more you look into it the more you see. My only thoughts remaining being that if it were printed large, I'd be happy to see as it has lasting appeal. Also looking forward to the morphs!
Make your life spectacular!

You know I love this one - and so glad to see the reed-be-gone has done its work. Beautiful content and colours, and I just love the pose of the egret on that old stump. The bleached wood adds a nice diagonal element which complements the lines of the reeds beautifully.

This appears as a beautiful watercolor to me. I particularly like the softness and pose of the egret, and the warm-toned reeds behind it. The leading line of the perch is a great compositional element. I think it is beautiful.

Really beautiful - seems almost 3D, the way he egret and stump stand out from the BG.
Excellent colours that compliment the golden slippers.
Exceptional work!

I almost forgot to mention the fine work you did with the "reed-be-gone" tool. Gorgeous image!

Very excellent work - If it were mine, I think I'd cut out part of the bottom so just a bit of the reflected log remained. The focus would be on the bird then.
