Wow - you aren't kidding that it brings out the colors, Danny! I need to find my sunglasses!

All kidding aside... These are both very colorful images - and I like color! If you want people to focus on the butterfly though, you might want to tone down the bright green a bit, since it seems to overpower the image.

I like your experiment with minimum and maximum - I have yet to really understand those two filters, so it's interesting to see them used. Thanks!

Jeanie

Doug, I love the subtle effect you got on your image - very "light" just like a butterfly.

Also - interesting tip on "unsharpening". Thanks.

Jeanie

Ok, this is just for fun, here's my donation. I first selected the butterfly and duplicated. Color balance -100 for cyan, mag, + 100 blue. Effects, pattern, darken mode, 90% opacity. The pattern was somewhat like lattice, not quite, but I liked it. I found out you learn a lot trying out different filters, and combination of filters
Sorry, guys, I did it in Deluxe. Not for long, I'm going to widen my horizons

Very creative. Lattice-work is inspired. Thanks for playing along. Your contributions are always welcome and appreciated.

Wanda - I love it! Especially how you darkened the butterflies to give a feeling of depth. Very, very cool!

I couldn't resist this one... here's what I came up with:

http://paragoneffect.com/portfolio/r...watercolor.jpg

I'll save ya from my usual description of 5000 words-- basically I used a combination of the art history brushes to create a "watercolor" effect. Then I created the "paper" on a new layer with good ol' Render> Clouds and Render> Difference Clouds... embossed it slightly for texture and set the layer mode to hard light. I duplicated the paper layer and set it to multiply, erased some of the areas around the butterfly and called it a night. (:

These are fun and I hope to get around to trying some more!

Brandee:

When I first saw your pic the three words I said out loud in a breathy exhale were: "Whoa! How cool!" The dreamy butterfly on the delicate paper is just a wonderful combination.

What a great way to start my day at 4:30 a.m.

After you get a couple hours of shuteye, would you do me two little favors:
* Add another post to this thread and attach a copy of your image. That way your creation will be preserved here at RP "forever" for folks to enjoy (hopefully) years in the future.
* And while you're at it, do tell us more about the technique you used to get such a great watercolor effect via Art History Brush. I've not seen anything this good watercolor-wise from AHB before.

Really look forward to seeing more of your magic. Glad you're having fun. Have as much as you like!
