JustChecking,
I like the way the flowers turned out, and the hummingbird fits right in also!

There are a number of different looks to the images submitted so far, from Jaykita's, Kiska's and Axleuk's light/bright and colorful variations, to the more subdued renditions of some others. My personal tastes generally run towards the light/bright/colorful, but that's what's wonderful about this forum -- you get to see other people's ideas of something that you would never have thought about yourself.

Think I'll work on this one again -- haven't done it in over a year.
Thanks, folks, for bringing it back up to the top!

Very, very cool, Rô.

I'll take 1% of the credit; the rest goes to you.

Excellent vision and execution.

Mac problem with the image

I got around the problem by taking a screenshot of the image(command-shift-4 then drag mouse across image), then dropped the PDF into PS7. worked fine.

I will be back later if I can do something worth showing to others.

I just love that effect. I like all of the images, but yours hit something in me. Sparking emotions is what it is all about.

I am humbled by all of you guys and gals.

This is far different than I started out to make it, but when all is said and done, it appealed to me. It certainly isn't the soft look I started out thinking about. In fact, it's rather hard edged which may not appeal to many due to the subject matter.

I changed the color of a layer of the original, embossed and embossed some more with the flowers, added a pattern, accented the edges, added a diffused glow, plastic wrapped, and smudged.

Over that I layered a copy of the original altered to a sepia coloration, greatly faded it, altered the saturation, added another paint effect, smart blur, and an over all bluish hue.

Welcome, JKK...

Glad you found the Photo-art forum and jumped right in.

re: Ended up far different that it originally started
Happens all the time to me. It's nice to not be locked into a particular destination, isn't it?

Regarding style appeal, the focus around here is to appeal to yourself first. If you like it, that's the vote that counts most. For artistic feedback, you can specificially ask for it (in your description) or start a thread in the Critiques forum (http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/), where that type of commentary is the norm.

From your location description and avitar, I'm thinking the "Tucson area." Am I close?

Again, welcome aboard. Look forward to seeing more of your handiwork.

~Danny~

Hey, Danny. Thanks for the really warm welcome. I usually jump right in and walk around with wet feet all the time.

Tucson is close, but close is only good in horse shoes and hand grenades. I am in the Valley (Phoenix area).

My avitar is actually a little red imp which is how I visualize myself from the inside out, btw.
