Lily Pond

My neighbors are retired and spend their days gardening. I have such beautiful views out of my front windows because of them. Today, I grabbed my camera and took some shots to share with you. This first one is of their fish/lily pond. Hope that you enjoy!

Re: Lily Pond

I posterized, used AHB and I think that was pretty much it except for the frame which was just some B&E within photoshop and Eye Candy.

Re: Lily Pond

Beautiful Lily's on the pond capture Susie. Again, I attached a smaller lower quality crop, but the complete rendering is here.

Re: Lily Pond

Thanks, lkroll, out of about 20 pics that I took, maybe about 4 or 5 would be worthy for submitting here for play... and that might even be questionable .

I really like the effect, Craig, that is really cool!

Re: Lily Pond

Hmmm not entirely sure, meant to select find edges, but think I got something else which fluoro'd the edges and then placed in overlay with a dropped opacity and then I reapplied the merged layer in screen mode and dropped back the opacity

Re: Lily Pond

Cass, I know what you mean about "not entirely sure", I do the same thing, trying so many different filters, opacities, etc.. that when I finally see a result that I like (and sometimes I disable a layer or two), I end up not entirely sure of which actions I kept. Thanks for your reply!
