I was practicing panning in my backyard on various subjects and loved this image I captured of one of my tall grasses in a planter. I really liked the angle of the comp and the feel of the shot. Then for more fun and added practice, I played with some photo filters and digitally altered it to come up with this fun image. Edited in Topaz with City Flare filter; PSE with Deep Red Filter added.
