Love that background GeoJerry. The whole scene has a dreamy quality that I find very appealing.

Interesting shot, I like the treatment too, I've no idea what it is, but works really well here.

Thanks Susan! This harmless little shot is actually one of my favorites.

Thanks kerrowdown. Here's how I did it, using OnOne's Perfect Photo Suite. I used Perfect Layers to add a deep blue color and then using a graduated filter set opacity from about 75% at the top to zero above the bird. I then added a texture layer "Rice Paper" in Perfect Effects. That's it!
