Thank you Helen. No HDR on this one although the effect does resemble HDR a little. All editing was done in Picasa3. I used the pencil sketch filter which washes out the color quite a bit, then the 'color boost' to bring color back. I think I probably sharpened the original photo. Hard to recall exactly what I did, as I tend to stack the effects one on top of another.

Thank you Barbara. I hadn't thought about the red/green complimenting each other here but it certainly helps.

Thank you Sylvia. Stunning huh? :-) Like you said to me once before....the pencil drawing filter works on some things better than others. About one in ten that I run through the filter turns out to my liking.
