Award Shortlist   


By mandarinkay
This is the result of having seen some of Chrissd's wonderful work, and I confess i have pinched one of his methods for this. I had tried zoom blur before with no real success. but this time I have come up with this ... thanks Chris Wink Go visit his website, you will not be disapointed!
I will be catching up with everyone soon, it has been a rough few days, but getting there. Probably be doing a lot of clicking and running, but will get there. I hope everyone is safe and well, take care,

I would maybe feather the change in the bottom right a bit but I really like it.

I am not normallt one for coloured borders but this one is spot on

There are some really pretty colours in this Karen & I like the position in the frame.Could perhaps do with a touch more feathering where the blur starts but I like your presentation & border work here.
