Lisa, I like both the original and the polar coordinate version. This is a very provocative image. It looks like a mandala, I could see this being used as a focus of meditation. The blue color is quite soothing, nicely done.   Posted: 10/08/2019 20:01:30

Lisa, this is an interesting abstraction. I would like to know more about how you did it? Did you use the polar coordinate filter as Brad suggests?   Posted: 10/13/2019 09:36:09

It's a spectacular image! Totally over my head technically since I don't do live stacking.

It looks like a jewel, so compelling.   Posted: 10/16/2019 13:42:04
