Another play with Topaz.   Couple of algorithms used this time.  Hope you enjoy.  Hope all safe.  Thought I'd drop a photo on you on my 65th....

Thanks Warren.  On a different note, I like to run.  Love the bit before I start.  The end bit is fabulous.  The only tricky bit is that in the middle... All the best.

Happy birthday Dave. 65 years young!! A wonderful post to celebrate. I love how you placed the own in the lower part of the picture. The textures are wonderful- This would make a great book illustration. For that matter...write the book with your beautiful Barn Owl creations! Dibs on the first edition. ;).

This is a very artistic creation, I like it a lot! The number of design elements are minimal and strong and lovely contacts of color, light/dark and curved and straight lines. A real winner...and speaking of winners Happy 65 David and best wishes to you.

Happy birthday David!
Really interesting image for the warm colors and the texture created on the surfaces.
Very nice composition of vertical and horizontal lines.
