Peaches- Alot of effects with alot of color made for a great picture. I'm always a sucker for butterflies so you did great. I do like the interesting blend of colors and the effects of the background which really bring out the butterflies quite well.
Super job my friend
Take care, happy Thanksgiving #5105985

Original photo was taken in my yard.
Comment's welcome and have a GREAT DAY!!!
Supposed to snow here in WI today!!!

I forgot to write everything I did but here is a lot of it.
I made a duplicate, used gaussin blur on one copy, applied image to the original, history brusy over the butterfly.
I then made a dublicate and flipped it horizontally. I cloned the second butterfly into the photo.
Layers, Many applied images different modes.
Used curves, render filter, cloning, healing, history and paint brush.

8/22/07, taken around 3:30 pm, 1/60 sec, 14.80 aperture, 60.00mm, ISO 80.
