Hummingbird in the Spring Rain

Uploaded: October 30, 2016 | Entered: October 30, 2016 13:46:31


A hummingbird perches on an orange lily. A Spring shower is in progress and the sun has made a brief appearance.
Original image of the hummingbird on the orange lily was taken in my Southern Oregon garden. Several layers of texture were combined in Photoshop CC to get the soft background. I added the purple daisies as a composit layer. I then processed the image in Mystical Gen2 and added the rain and sunlight with this software. I painted the raindrops onto the flower petals by using and image of a window filled with raindrops.
Texture by Jai Johnson and myself
