Thanks Siggi and yes it was orginally a black and white image.

Great effect, Barb. That must've taken quite a few clicks. It might
be cool if saturn is stretched or distorted as it's pulled in to the void. I know what the guy's saying, "This reminds me
of when we took acid back in the 70's".

lost count of the clicks Joe ... I was just having fun experimenting with the layers and effects adding more and removing
others and shuffling them around until I came up with what you see here. That's why I'm not exactly sure how many of the provided
images are in there ... but I know there are definitely more than two.

Cool experiment. I'd say it was a success.

I really like this. The use of the images provided work well. Very impressive...

This is just a great idea, love it! I prefer this one to the other, don't know why, maybe just
because the more calm feeling.

& Gunsan ... My original idea was to have an angel emerging from the funnel (minus the telescope image) ... but I couldn't
find an image of one that I liked. The girl in Gunsan's image would have been perfect..

This one's really wild, Barb. Love the
colors and the swirling vortex. I think they're both great. I probably like this one just a little more than the first one.

Thanks Joe ... this version is AT LEAST 15
to 20 clicks prior to the other one that I posted ... I told you there are a lot of layers that got turned off along the way
... but this is ONE of the points in the process that I liked it enough to save it before going on. ... I also added a bit
of a twist.

I like this one more...
I think it's much more vibrant and alive than the first.
From: Siggi (Sun May 15 13:13:19 2011)
of the colour i seem to prefer this one as well...............the people with the telescope seemed to be on the wrong side
of the vortex to see much......

I'm in total
agreemnet with Siggi's comment.

I like this one very much, but it is a pity you deleted the
funnel images. The first one I liked a lot!
From: Barbara Garber (thebags) (Sat May 21 11:37:23 2011)
you Gun ... I'm still debating that ... I could always delete "Under The Sea" and put one of those back ... they can't all
stay ... we're only allowed 2 entries.

make a great large print for over the sofa. I really liked the second funnel but this is cool too.

Thank you Joe and Siggi ... that look was achieved with twirl, pinch, radial blur, and several
other filters and effects ... but NOT liquify ... and that's what I love about these challenges ... learning how others see
what I have done.
