I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!

What a great idea for the visuals from whence comes the sound of the sea. Love how you used the seashell ridges motif. Well done!!!!!

Sandy....yes you need to go to warm sands, cerulean seas, and gentle breezes.. ASAP. :D:D.. however this little abstract ROCKS!... great color scheme and as D Akey points out the seashell ridges and curves are all clues to seashells...:cool::cool::)

I cannot figure out how You got this (pretty sure there was also some sort of layer blending mode too), but I do like this very much. Certainly it's not a statical abstract composition and not even a noisy and confusing one!
