Thank you for the kind comments regarding my last picture, the circle of soccer. I saw the coach gathering the girls in a circle around her and I liked the symbolism that as coach, she was standing in the middle of her 'troops'. I photographed that image and then in elements I quickly eliminated a few items-gym bag and soccer ball from the frame. I wanted the grass to be the background without clutter. I used a filter to give the image a swirl or two and the image, on the blog, is the result. What filter? uh...mmm...I honestly forgot! But it was fun practicing with all the filter possibilities.
