Raspberry Whispers in Ruffles of Spring

Uploaded: November 09, 2006


A macro of a white carnation, with lots of filter work: Applied poster edges and anisotropic diffusion, then used Harry's filters - Gradients/mixed beam - for colorizing.

Its a dreary, wet day here (11-09)and this seemed like a nice reminder of better days past!
