The original for The Visitation (1-14-11) is very old, but just revised today. I have another really old version and wanted to see what photoshop might add to this scene. I've taken many of this St. Francis figure in the approximately four years I've been snapping pix around here. It's one of my perennial "let's give it another try" shots. I particularly like it when it's got vines climbing up it as if they, too, seek his care. Anyway, I sort of like the mystery the "plastic wrap" filter brings to this shot (among other functions I used), giving it a little central glow. And makes the greenery look a bit as if its gathering around him.
