Almost had the chance to return to work yesterday.  UK not quite ready.  Looking back on some images, this one strikes me as a beacon attempting to fight through the germ banks we keep throwing at ourselves.  (A little beacon of hope).... 

Topaz Glow.  Two programs, blended, part opacity reduced on second to seek that elusive balance where one does not overpower the other.

Please feel to view uncompressed.  Get a better sense of blur.  LOL.  Thank you for looking and hope all safe.

Very clever!  I like what you've done with this idea - and I think it works brilliantly!  A really appealing end result, artistically, too.  Well done, Dave.  :)

This is very creative, and the analogy of a beacon fighting through germ banks is beautifully represented, Dave. I love the color palette, particularly the blues and oranges, and in large view the germ cell detail is excellent. Great job with Topaz Glow, and I love how you left the puffin recognizable and not too altered. As Carol noted, "a really appealing end result, artistically." Excellent. :)

Thanks Ron and Carol.

Decided yesterday to catch up with some annual exams. (20.). Insurance Conduct of Business Sourcebook, (ICOBS...CONC-the Consumer Credit Sourcebook), etc... Truly riveting material. After two hours, my one brain cell had died.

However, I miraculously recovered and completed the remaining 18 other exams, hence my insane dip into the micro world of germ warfare.

The first part is truth. The latter Bull, but I did need to let my mind explore.

Appreciate your thoughts and comments always.
