Uh oh - I need help. Please stop me! I've got too much other stuff to do!!

A simple kaleidoscope using 10 segments. Sharpened, increased saturation in the R/Y/M channels. Added outer/inner "glow", which I changed to more of a shadow by changing the blending mode to multiply instead of screen and changing the color to black.

Thanks CJ and Phili. I appreciate your kind words.

But, I really do have to stop for a little bit. I know it sounds boring, but I have got to finish filing the piles in my office. It's important, b/c I've told myself I can't put my new computer together until I get the filing done. (Otherwise, I'll never do the filing. And it's gotten to the point where I can't find anything anymore. )

Wow there are some really fantastic images up on this one - a very inspiring image

Heres my version, I have gone for a minimalist image - didn't really have to do to much
- cut out image
- adjusted the curves
- used a few layers with different settings to get the white
- it looked slightly unfinished so just produced a quick frame from the colours in the petals and lowered the opacity

This may have been said before, but I know one job I would
never apply for..... "Entry Judge." Each of you really were
inspired, all merit great praise. Such beauty & talent....

For the valley of Pink Lotus..... may I add a couple

Goldcoin,
I agree - I'd really hate to be an entry judge!!

OK - LAST ONE for me!!! (At least for a little while. I just love lotus, so might come back to this one.)

For this version, I selected the flower, copied to a new layer, transformed with 97% size and -5 rotation. Repeated that a few times (copy to new layer, transform using same values). Then rotated the entire image back a few degrees to have the center a little more level. Cloned in the background where needed. Ran the Paint Enging Mosaic filter and faded about 50%. Increased saturation in the yellow channel to make the center glow a little more.

jeaniesa - Thats fantastic - I love the way you've duplicated the leaves - Makes a completely different composition.

Goldcoin - I like your first image - you've made the flower look like it is made out of silk - so beautiful.
