Welcome back Margaret.

I have discovered on the photoscape programme that the watercolour effect can really enhance a picture which has a certain feel to it. I recently "nicked" a photo off a friend on facebook which I had commented had a Jack Vettriano feel to it in my eyes -two figures in the distance on a beach. Gave it that treatment and sent it back to my friend and he loved it -saw it with different eyes - not improvement on nature but it did somehow heighten it and show him what i meant...we had been discussing the Photography/art thread which "Church" started and you may not have seen yet.

“Beauty is an experience, nothing else. It is not a fixed pattern or an arrangement of features. It is something felt, a glow or a communicated sense of fineness.”
