f/ 8.0, 1/338 sec., EV +1/3, ISO-200, 12:29 PM, Philadelphia, PA.
I worked from the original edited version of a non DA image that I took in early July. First everything was buzzed. That got rid of the purple flowers and some other items in the background. I selected the flowers and then the inverse and used Flaming Pear India Ink and then Twist on the background. I then took the flower layer and did the same thing except for changing some of the Twist settings. When I put all the layers together, I really did not like how the flowers looked...they blended into the background too much. I saved the image and reopened it in Corel Photo Paint. I used a oil paint smudge special effects tool and went over the flower petals. That blended the petals, gave it interesting color tones and some texture.
