Al, these all turned out nice. I especially like the effect in #1. It looks like thick oil paint and could work well with many different subjects. Wish PS had a filter like that.

Very nice Al! I especially like #4 - it looks like it's glowing!

Phyllis, being with m$ does sometimes have its advantages

Jeanie, I included that #4 as I could almost see the lotus as cupped hands holding a glowing ball.

Al, what fun! Each is so different and adds a new dimension to the bloom.

Guess I haven't done one of these yet -- too busy enjoying all your submissions.

Here's one with the red channel layer blending set on Difference over a modified bloom with some mezzotinting masked in for texture and brightening.

You really can't stop at just one of these, can you?! [Alan, your image is so beautiful].


Here's a lighter version....playing with the Red channel.

Cj.....

Both of these are wonderful, love the way you were able to center on the seed part of this flower..... looks almost real, alive & growing.

The white one, is my pick.....

Wow, CJ, those are awesome! I like both with slight preference for the white one. How did you get the speckles? I love the gold speckles against the purple in the first one! Was that the result of mezzotint? Or did you use diffuse filter, or diffuse blend mode also...or something else?

Chuck -- Really love that PSP sepia effect! Beautiful!
Goldcoin -- thanks, I'm glad you like it.
Phyllis -- yes, the speckles were from mezzotint -- I masked the effect to control where they showed up.

Chuck, nice effect that sepia. Will have to try it on something sometime.

CJ, I agree with Goldcoin and Phyllis. I also like the white one.
