This is excellent and the colors are beautiful. Not only is it a D10F for me, but it brings back one of the few happier memories of WWII. :D

Thanks for the nice comment.

Re res: OK - I realised it wasn't high enough but decided to submit as a response to the tutorial caedes put up (see discussion board "tutorials") to show what an amateur could do in about 1 hour, from what caedes suggested. One of the probs I had was learning about increasing res from the start with a PSD doc. see discussion.

I thought it was just a jump to the left....and then a step to the right. <kidding>
Anyways, this is cool. Maybe I should read some of those tutorials.

WOW! This is really good! I love the contouring lines that really draw your eye around the piece and the colours are nice too! Good work Mum42!

You have used my favorite colors in this image. It totally caught my eye. I also really like the varying light to dark colors in this image(sorry wasn't quite sure how else to word it).

Thanks, Winnter.
The tonal variations came from using Caedes' tutorial on layers, and afterwards selecting the contour layer, then Layer Style>Blending options>Styles>blue glass. Fairly easy...(now the magic is gone though, I guess!)
