    love this... what is it??

    Max Schenk said (13 Jan 2008):

    Thanks Kate - It is the ice of a frozen puddle in the parking lot of a nearby beach. The colors have been saturated a little, some sharpening and, with a bow to Michael Van Der Tol, a touch of the clarifier tool from my Corel Paint Shop Pro.

    Now I must visit his ice pictures! At first glance I thought this was something denim because of the color and some of the texture. Truly beautiful

    You're supposed to give credit to him by adding his link to your description so we can visit him and see what you mean. Surely I know who he is, but not all the newbies do.
