Spring Flowers

I shot the photos while hiking the Jenny Lake trail today. We are expecting a snowstorm this week and these may well be dead by Saturday. So have a ball and paint them up.

Re: Spring Flowers

Jenny Lake is so beautiful. What a wonderful place to spend time with your family. You are blessed to live in such spectacular country.

Re: Spring Flowers

Nice versions folks!

Extracted and duplicated flower for the smaller ones.

Several layers of PST with different brushes/opacities and each layer sharpened for added texture.

Re: Spring Flowers

All are great renditions

Here is my take on each. The first image is my first attempt using a smudge technique. Not great I'm afraid but we all gotta start somewhere. The other two are just filter play.
