And that's about the size of it...!

Complete with surgically excised shell...and very poor lighting...the "wet" sand really is much darker but I'm as good with the camera as I am with computers!

Well, Val, if anyone knows the sea, it would be you so maybe they WERE seashells after all!  Thank you!

What software are you having a problem with...you know, I'm a computer wizard...maybe I can help!   :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

The software is a Photoshop program. Not even sure of the version as yet. Will have to sit down, stick the disc in, listen to the whirlygigs, watch the screen flash....and that's where my expertise ends!  I'm actually hoping it's a self-loader.   :whistle:
Cheers, Val

Wow! Mary, your painting looks great! It's a pity about the lighting though. I'd love to have seen it in natural light. You've done a great rendition of this.  :clap: :clap:

Mary, I'm afraid to admit that I'm confused here.   :confused:   :uglystupid2:

Is this your painting?  Or is this your practice with the photo editing?

Either way, you've done a fantastic job.

Tony - thank you so much!  Yes - you're right about the lighting...I have to learn to stop taking pics at night!  :thankyou:
