Thanks everyone.

Post processing on this one was probably one of the more involved in my portfolio. The original image was good, but I had a vision of a watercolor type image and used a number of Nik Color Efex plugins applied selectively within Capture NX2. Each effect also used varying opacities to maintain a bit of the background as needed.
