Thank you so much everyone who left clicks or comments on my Saturday Shadow yesterday. In particular many thanks to Pamelafor her User Award - very much appreciated SmileSmile
This afternoon I went with my friend Barbara to Kings Heath Park gardens - and they were shut - wrong week !!!
So we had a cup of tea in the tea room.
Naturally there were some photo opportunities with the teapot WinkWinkWink
Thanks for looking
Helen

v2 is what I have worked with. It is the reflection of the metal table in the teapot handle. I have rotated it slightly and adjusted shadows/highlights in CS3 to bring back the detail in the lattice metal table, cropped and then put four layers together. I tried out different arrangements of the layers and for me this was the only one that worked - hope that helps to make sense of what you can see

I wonder how many photo opportunites you get Helen,
if you were invited to the Mad Hatters tea party !!
Good abstract shots.

Not one to miss an opportunity - you've worked your magic
once again! but have to admit I'm puzzling over what I'm seeing or not
as case may be!

Stunning abstracts Helen, love the colour, but like Kate I cannot see a teapot.

Excellent spot, Helen, but there again you always seem to find these opportunities.Smile

I would like to see a version with just the bottom half to add even larger degree of abstract to the image. Well, I think it would look OKWink Don't know what you think?
