I'm curious--which version of "Snowdrops" do you prefer? I favor one, then the other, then back to the first. I think that's the mark of a great image--that it can be rendered in several ways and still be successful. Congratulation, I think you've done that!!

19 Apr 2010 7:47am

@Bill Laing: Thanks for your comments. Like you, I don't know which one I prefer. I do prefer both of them to the one for Silly Tuesday. I also know that if it were not for the plug-in doing all of the work, I wouldn't begin to attempt to create the various versions. For Wednesday-Friday, I have another original plus two variations, all of which I like, and any of which, I would put on a wall.

I'm not sure what Topaz or Simplify is in terms of photography but I do like the result!

20 Apr 2010 4:25am

@Diane Schuller: Topaz produces third party plug-ins. Simplify is one of their plug-ins.

Barbara from Florida, United States

I really like what you did with this. The flecks of red enhance the composition. I actually prefer this one over the original.
