Well, it's a brand new year with all of its' challenges ahead! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas season as I did. I took 2 full weeks off to do some home improvement projects and to spend time on my passion. I purchased the newly released Topaz glow plugin and had a blast with it. It has a lot of sliders to play with that affect glow type, brightness, color and spread to name a few. You can apply a little or a lot for different effects. It comes with some presets that you can modify, or you can create your own. The picture of the hat was one I found from my trip to Bodie last summer that I had not worked on. I really like the result and hope you enjoy it also.
