Beautiful renditions, one and all, but I'm wondering how you did yours, Craig? Very cool.

Hi Craig,
Lots of lovely ideas for the flowers in a pot.....i did the corners in a free program called PHOTO FILTRE its afrench one but translated to many languages...lots of plugs and masks free too...
The dreamy effect was from yet another of my collection of freebies...autofx DREAM SUITE dreamy....i think its a great plugin why not give it a go....

regards Patricia

Nice image to work with because it lets you play with several main elements -- the background wall, the table, the pot, and/or the flowers.

Using Unsharp masking with Diffuse, I like the effect of the "aging" of the pot. Then I selected the wall, table, and petals and made some changes. Added a shadows/hi-lights layer (overlay) and played with fantasy sunlight coming through the kitchen window, then added a dupe of that layer set to Color layer blend to emphasize my choices.

Went back and forth on changes, and probably will try another one, but I don't know if any of this is helping Rodrigo -- but I'm having fun, and that helps me!

Hmmm, how DID I get here?!

My layer stack has an original dupe on the bottom, then a copy set to Exclusion layer blend on top of that, a copy set to Overlay, which results in a layer which I masked out the pot and table. Then I duped that layer and inverted it and set it to Normal layer mode, masking out the pot and table, topped by an UN-inverted copy set to Difference mode with no layer mask. I think I made a merged layer from that and then put it over a copy of the original layer and masked out all but the blooms somewhat. Added some noise to the mask and ran Dry brush to add effect to the pot. I think....
