My hat's off to you for taking the leap. My Wacom is still in the box after 2+ years. (Old habits die hard.) Soon as I get PS CS3 installed, the tablet/stylus will be next.

Note, however, to ensure my long term health both afore mentioned endeavors will wait until I knock off a few more items on the "Honey-Do" list.

Re: Creative interpretations: Flowers from Carnation, WA

How about a little BW?

This was pretty much a trial/error exercise of making multiple copies of the R, G and B channels, creating individual layers from them and trying various layer blend mode settings (Overlay was used often).

Each layer had a layer mask filled with black (aka a "hide all" layer mask). I airbrushed with white onto the mask to reveal portions of a given layer that I wanted to show.

PM... That looks very commercial. Would be great for the background of an ad.

Danny, you inspired me to try a little B&W with a splash of color. Duped the pic; cut the blossom out; duped the blossom; desaturated the blossom; did a gaussian blur (50 pixels); set the blending mode to screen; lowered the opacity to 15%; did the same thing to the color blossom but left the opacity to 100%; desaturated the duped pic and used the Levels adjustment to increase the contrast.
