Butterfly On a Painting

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Butterfly On a Painting
Butterfly On a Painting
I have submitted this image before, but with a totally different treatment. For this piece of photoart, I wanted to create the illusion that a real butterfly had been fooled by a beautiful painting of lavender. I hope I have succeeded. This was taken at the lavender farm in Stone Bluff, OK in June of 2004. F3.6, shutter @ 1/294. I don't remember what filters I used to get this effect, it's been a while ago. I hope you like it.

I like this idea! I would experiment further with some of the paint effects in PS...like fresco, etc.

Thanks so much Michelle, Casey, Lisa and Roseann.

Roseann, I have tried some different filters, and I liked the Monet feel of this one best. I'll attach one of the other versions.

Pretty image D A!!! Possible friendly ideas: apply a texture to the Monet style painting to give it a slight canvas feel ; apply a 3d frame around the painting ; apply a small drop shadow for the butterfly hovering in front of the painting. Great job, regardless if any further work is done!

Got your e-mail DA. Hope I made sense in possible ways to achieve in my explanation. Wasn't sure which program you were using, but the basics usually are cross platform...just different ways to get there. Here's a concept of what I visualized you doing ...submitting example into post..hope it is o'kay.
