Very engaging and original effect. How did you produce the color gradient? Love it. ... MomentsForZen

MomentsForZen ~ I'd like to take credit for creating that gradient...but it's one of PhotoFXUltra's presets: Sunset #1 with the red set @ 61 and highlights @ 84. I also overlayed this with a steel and transparency Special Effects...also two of PhotoFX Ultra's presets. I glad you like this image...it's bit of a "sleeper" I think...

Wonderful - pavilions feature in my life living in the tropics - so memories and textures I am familiar with - Wow!!

Thanks Dave for the processing information. I had a close look at the sequence, and can see how you got to the end result. I use Photo fx Ultra quite a bit, but it sure has such a bewildering array of options that I doubt that anyone knows them all.

By the way, how do you record processing sequences? I take screen captures at critical times to capture the programs and settings for later, when I have time to write down the sequence in the description section on Flickr - where I post my photos. This is very time consuming, and prone to error if too much time elapses between processing and posting. Yet, it is extremely valuable if I want to reproduce the effect later. I dream of the time when app developers will get it all together so that each one records the sequence and settings automatically in a metadata file!

MomentsForZen ~ I have made it a practice to write everything down as I go...usually using my own "shorthand" on a scrap piece of paper. I then transfer these notes to a "recipe book" that I've been keeping for all my images in my i365 project. This is a bit time consuming but it's so helpful as a future reference! The only time I'll do screen captures is when I'm writing a tutorial for sites like The AppWhisperer.
