Mod Flower

Uploaded: June 19, 2006 07:33:19


This is one of the flowers I took in Kansas. I worked on it in Photoshop and came up with this. It is my modern art form...I took the flower on macro, 1/125, F7.8, ISO200. Then in PS I used filters, saturation, curves, and added some texture. Hope you all have a great day!!
