Bit surprised by the 'cinemascope' effect on Picasa, it certainly darkened and brightened this shot of the clouds outside school, and gave the clouds a touch of the old master rather than the middle-old me! Once I hit it, there was no way back.
You are too kind, leaving such sweet (!) comments on my smartie flag shot yesterday... I think when I attempt it again I shall just have to get lots more packets of smarties...! Thank you for your kindnesses, you're all sweet too :)
