This has always been one of my Favorite Images. But from the day I created "just wasen't right" for me. I've been foolin with it for the past year, off and on, and I finally think I am happy. Thanks for takin a look, comments are certainly welcome. The first upload of the Image can be seen here:Old Shallows It's in Wide Screen Format now. This is a Terragen created Image. Thanks PJ, for teachin me how to "Paste" a link! :-) :-)

You're welcome :) I just went back to look at your other upload via your fine link ;) and I think that since I see you got a very high score on that first go around, that improvement might be subjective at this point. Although I must say that this is clearer and more intense, the mistiness of the other also has its own appeal. You can't go too far wrong with either one of them...Excellent work, my friend. :)

The vibrancy of the colors is so much better!

The old one wasn't bad either.

Ello there
It's a clean, natural, and beautiful landscape You've created Greg. The flight of birds in the brilliant sky You've engineered soften the harsh envoirnment. However it's also a barren, and lonely place too, unsuitable 4 human habitation. Well done Greg u can be proud of this one.

Lifes around said Phil the 35 millimetre cameraman. I recently went to the doctors, and said I've got icon fever, but he told me there was no cure for the disease.

I really like the changes you have made. Wonderful shot, I am glad you kept at it, I'm afraid I would have hit delete.

This is lovely; I found it browsing through the galleries. You wouldn't happen to have it in 1440x900? :-). I have (and prize) the old Shallows as well.
