To My Valentine:
You make my world go TILT

Tech: 1) tight macro shot by lady who should be in bed with the flu :); backlit using flash on a cable laid on the table behind the candle holder with a small candle in the holder
2) Added hand-drawn hearts using a paint brush "Dry Brush" (near the end of the list of brushes in PhotoShop CS2 -- it allows you to use two colours - in this case red and yellow)
3) resized and sharpened
4) added frame
5) selected black portions of the frame and painted in more hearts with dry brush technique
6) added signature and text in four separate lines
7) tilted the word "tilt" using free transform
8) flattened

Thanks for looking and stay healthy, folks -- this flu bug is very NASTY

Hello Silke,

A powerful presentation of the auspicious day of passion. Thoughtfully created image having an awesome charm of vision. Well done my friend.

Thanks for sharing this shot.

Hi Silke,

What an interesting angle you have chosen for this candle! I did a double take to see what it was at first. You have such a creative way of seeing the ordinary... I love it!

Get well soon! I'm home from work today with the flu... no fun!

Happy Valentine's Day to you too.


Is there no way you could not be so creative...a natural born graphics artist Silke. You missed your true calling..

Another sight of the ordinary changed to the super interesting, Silke. I like the way you have used the light and angle used. I had to check twice to be sure of what I was seeing. Great colour and interesting notes. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and Roy.
Warm Regards,

Hi Silke,
I think your work looks like an abstract artwork. I like light and bluurred glass effect. Happy Valentine Day to you too...

Hi Sike,

Hi my friend

Beautiful composition and well presented



I hope you are on the improve Silke. Excellent artwork with good colour and detail. All nicely arranged within the frame and well presented. No flu here but a back spasm yesterday while walking in town and not a very comfortable night. It only hurts when I breathe :). TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Cascade Brewery’

I hadn't added any favourites for ages Silke, you and Hans were the latest.
