Having some fun with PS and filters. I took this in my garden and played around in PS. Sometimes you can come up with some great pictures. This was taken at 1/250, F8, ISO200. I used Adobe PS, watercolors, invert, textures and some other things, I can't remember. It was fun, anyway! Have a great day!!
