Thank you, Joshi. Sometimes the ICM technique gives you gifts.

Has this been rotated Linda? I think I’d prefer it turned 90 degrees CCW, so that the dark band which is now on the left and vertical would be horizontal near the bottom. That way, the image would read more like a landscape to me, looking out across a body of water to a distant shoreline and a resplendent sky above.

It was not rotated, Alan, except now—to the vertical. I don’t know which I prefer, but I will now also rotate “Playing with the Landscape 13,” which I definitely prefer rotated to look more like a landscape or seascape.

Very, very nice! Brings to mind Monet’s biggest water lily paintings – the light and the scale, the soft textures and colors. Contrary to what Alan said, I like it this way, and in terms of “what it is” I see it more as trees. But mostly for me it’s all about that light receding into spaciousness.

Thank you, Lynn. As you see above, I tried Alan’s rotation. It’s interesting: in the horizontal, the white (as you say) recedes, but in the vertical—for me at least—it advances.
