This is a close-up of the top of a bundle of marking flags. The flags are about 2" by 3", and the sticks they're glued to are metal rods about half the thickness of a metal coathanger, and are about a foot long. I changed the hue to blue (they were bright pink flags) and lowered the saturation. Then I duplicated the layer, applied gaussian blur (about 12 pixels) and lowered the new layer's opacity to 29%.
