      I agree with Karen. Very interested in the technique behind this very cool photo. HDR effect?

      JeffT333 and Karen,

      I did, indeed, start with a three-exposure HDR shot. Then I applied Redfield's Fractalius filter (on a layer in PSE9) and blended it with the HDR composite. I don't remember the layer blend mode but it was probably Overlay or Soft Light -- might've been Multiply. I also reduced the Fractalius layer's opacity so as not to overwhelm the original and use a layer mask to keep it off the main horizontal feature of the image. After merging those layers, I took the result into NIK CEP4 (Color Effects Pro 4) where I selectively applied a heavy Glamour Glow filter.

      One final detail: I was shooting with a stack of a +2 and a +4 diopter close-up filters on my lens which accounts for the shallow DOF.

      Hope this helps,
      -- Sam
