This is gorgeous Susan. Beautifully composed and the effects you used are excellent. I like the way you highlighted just the one flower. Excellent work. Care to share the details of how it was done? #630824

Susan Fox April 02, 2007

Thanks so much Peter :-)

I did lots and lots of just fiddling around in photoshop. To the point that I can't remember what I did exactly.

I did use the Impressionist filter, which is a free download filter. Along with overlaying the image a few times. Then adjusting color to get the sepia look.

Then duplicating the main layer and converting to B&W and overlaying.

If I do this correctly, the orginial photo should show up so you can see what I started with. #4122986

Thought I'd come look at your favorites more closely--think I had commented the cat and of course this one before. This is still my favorite though I have to say the pov and dof on the bouquet are wonderful. Best of luck with all your entries. #4297873
