  1. What a surprise to see this lovely butterfly in my garden today. I used multiple layers with blending and filtering to create the background, all based on this image of the butterfly.

    OK Virginia.....

    I'm coming over to the States to see you create one of these lovely images!!!!!

    This has it all for me but in particular your use of delicate colours - pastels...

    Truly beautiful...

    You should be very proud of this one Virginia.

    Best wishes

    Very nice work Virginia. Made me go and look at your other work. Very impressive.
  14. Excellent work Virginia. Your repeated use of the desaturated butterfly image in the background is so creative and neat. Very well done.

    Very pretty and creative, Virginia.
    Between you and Ray, you have the dramatic and soft side of things covered, thanks for posting, I enjoy these.

  17. Oh my, I behind the times.
    Many thanks to you, Bob, Ray, Gretchen, Pete, Arif, Gordon, Patrick and Stephanie.

    Yes, Ray, it would be wonderful to have you "pop over" to the States. I'm sure there are many of us who like me would like to get together with you and learn how you do such masterful retouching too!
