Newbie Just a Yellow Texas flower.

I forget where I took this flower, but it was here in Texas. I used Photoshop CS4 to create my rendition from the original. Just basically used the spin technique overlaid the original and then a mask bringing back some of the original with a black brush. See what I have learned from you all.

One of these is the original and one of these is the reworked one. I still don't know which one to load first. <<<sigh>>>

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

That came out pretty nice, I like the bright colors and the spin effect. It makes sense to me to have the original is first and the rendition second, not sure really if there is a convention.

Cool result Gunner; hope you don't mind humoring my binge with me. Been doing candle wax for a few days now (even made a few candle stick renders too; lol).

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

Had a few tries at this one, but was hard not to wreck the original beauty of the image. Lyle that looks close to the felt painting effect I am looking for.

Hey what cool effects you guys did. I've never been able to do anything with the glass thing.

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

Gunner went a bit doolally on this one (what is expected really the grandkids had just gone getting calmer now though )

Great shot though love the colours

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

Lyle, How did you manage to make this one? Can you recall what you used, etc. I absolutely love it.

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

Did a few of these already Gunner. I first enhanced the Dynamic Range, then I used a Plastic Wrap Script-fu followed by GREYCstoration plugin (actually used the older version since I like it's interface better; can't find that link though).

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

Gunner not up to Lyle's standards by a long shot
but had a quick play and got this which with more tweeking would get you closer
using the plastic wrap filter settings 17,11,16
not had much luck using this filter before but on flowers especially strong ones it seems to do ok
so have a mess around and see what you can come up with ?

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

Thanks that works also. At least you all have given me the starting points. Lyle's need translating into Photoshop from Gimp. Now I just need to spend the rest of today, tomorrow and the next day working on this.
