    I like these last two images - the upward and then the downward. They almost look like watercolour paintings. Very nicely done.

    Yes, I'd like to see this one blown up as large as possible.

    Thanks for the kind comments. I guess looking like an idiot wasn't such a bad price to pay after all. I kept doing this one over and over like a crazy robot until I got what I thought was my vision. I am thinking of having this one done in a large size on canvas for a spot in our house. Wondering though if it might be dizzy making in a larger size. I think I'm caught up now in this style for a while yet. Everywhere I go I'm flipping, twisting, turning--people are beginning to wonder.

    How big to you want to blow it up? What resolution do you have (or at le? There is a little noise in there so watch that too. I just checked and you've got enough for about 10x12 with no problem. Above that gradually gets more problematical. I've been meaning to looking software that claims to bump up resolution.

    I have that software and it seems to work well but as you say that photo will be problematic and may never end up on my wall in the format I want it but it's fun trying to figure things out or maybe I just fool around with it and add some weird filters or glows or whatever and invent a whole new picture. I can print at home a 13 x 19 so I can just give a try with not much investment and see what happens. Thanks for the interest-it's nice.

    I'm interested in how well the blowing up works. Perhaps you can show off a print at a meetup sometime. It sound like you know more about printing than I do. I've just been finding out about different levels of sharpening for different types of paper or other surfaces. It's complicated. It seems that you and I both like to *not* leave-well-enough-alone. :) Sometimes I get 5 pictures out of one shot.
