no filter forge this time. this is a bit of a smudge. i used a sarshair smudge on several layers, duplicated the layers and blurred the dupes, some more than once. there were some blends in there and a copy merge and a very heavy digital camera noise removal. on top of all that i added a contrast/lighten adjustment layer and another copy merge/paste as new layer. on the new layer i did an illumination.

i might have missed something in there. there were 20 layers.

I am happy you all like my photos and glad i decided to post the second one..

Janet.....I love this flower...its so delicate even in the darker colors.....there are many colors and varieties...I have a plum colored one..so different from the ones posted ....its like a pom pom...Two more still to flower and i think one is a pale yellow....will get a little gallery together and post the link here...no daffs Janet...havent had any in my garden for three weeks now...we are about a month behind with flowering owing to sub zero temperatures in winter...believe me i am surprised every year when all my plants pop out of the frozen earth!!!!
Your painting is really lovely and i like the blue mottled background....

Craig....Ah the magic of filter forge....you are doing amazing things with it...Frozen ice is my fave of those two...will check it out later in the day...But your smudge is really beautiful and mystical...cant stop looking at it...Mr Craig.....you are one talented guy...

JohnnieB...I can see you are getting well into smudging and i really like your picture...think you are doing great...Who needs sleep anyway...when you can smudge the night away????

Lyle....where is yours???????

Patricia.....

here is my second version of the first flower image -- it's similar but a little more dramatic.

i could work on this image forever, it is truly beautiful!

Steve.... I think simple black frames are sooooo useful and sometimes all a picture needs to finish it off...

JohnnieB...Think we all need a bit of encouragement at times....Love your second version of the columbines...smudged beautifully with a perfect frame...
Here are a couple of links to flowers i have posted before.....you might like to smudge them too....
