Thanks again Sherry for the information.. very much appreciated. I'm reasonably familiar with Topaz, or at least I thought I was.. I do have all the Topaz plugins... There are so many possibilities - just takes time to sit and play with them all. As I mentioned previously I'm very impressed with how you processed your images.. many are gallery quality.
The blazing sunset photo was from last summer. I have so many images from then to edit that I am just now getting to some of them. The 4 sailboats was from last night. I won't be out with the camera tonight as Michele and I have plans. If you go, I'm sorry that I will miss you.
The eagles are within eyesight of where we live. I watch them with field glasses from our third floor apartment at Heather Lake. The birds are quite active, even when the mother is in the nest and not always arround to photograph. But, when they are there, they put on quite a show. Feel free to stop up sometime and I will get you to the nest location.
No new photographs for many reasons.....busy, family, illness, learning a new Canon camera, learning new software....and the list goes on. I hope all is well with you. Your three new photos are great, as usual.
