    Great contrast, texture and mysterious mood with the clouds and stones of the castle, Cybele. Very nice result. As a matter of interest, what does the Topaz flter do?

    1. Thank you Chris!! You can go to their website and download different topaz filters on a trial basis. There are quite a few of them at different cost. They add glow effects, painterly effects etc!! Just a bit of fun with editing stuff!! I try not to over do it lol!!
