I took a lot of pictures of the icy creations on the 4th and here are two more. I did this page for a creative techniques challenge, this time a year in review of all the topics covered last year. My main one was a photo within a photo but also used a high pass sharpen filter (on the small photo and overall on the web-sized version) and did a little cluster work. The large photo has a hard light blend mode. I call it "Glisten and Glow."
