Summer Flower

i was out and about the other day and ran into a couple nice areas of flowers. i dont really know what these are, but they bloom for a fairly long time and have a nice flower, coming in whites, pinks/magentas and light violets. the shop came out nicely and thought i'd post it up.

Re: Summer Flower

Another formula for an oil. Supersharpen, GREYC, ICE4, GREYC, ImpressionFX with Paper preset, back into GIMP for Glass Tile set to Desolve and finally Xero's Supersmooth filter. Yes, all filters and layer properties only that were used.

Click here for the complete rendering; attached is just a crop.

Re: Summer Flower

Thanks Craig. Left out one of the most important steps. A blending of DCSpecial's 1969 filter for the enhanced saturation. Pretty obvious that I skipped this step. lol

Re: Summer Flower

Nice pic Craig, I was wondering who would crack first and post a flower. Palms would have been going cold turkey,
Thought I'd try a smudge with a crazy BG.
