Re: Cyclamen challenge ?

Palms, I am constantly amazed at your smudges.. Great work!
Have you considered shooting your still life's like the Cyclamen in HDR?

Joe I love the way you played with the background and managed to sneak a cat in there!

Lyle the colors, brush strokes, and all blend together perfectly, Nice Job!

Peter, me thinks you have a passion for doing flowers because you always present an exquisite rendering.. a very nice job.. well done.

I tried a smudge cause they are flowers..

A cat? That's why I like flipping the pic's. You never know what will show up. I never put a cat in there. Maybe it's one of those ghost photos.

If nobody else sees it then maybe I am just tired or smoking the wrong stuff!

I can see the cat but it wasn't a cat until I changed it to B&W and flipped it. All kinds of different shapes show up when you flip a pic and twist it up. I didn't do it on purpose.
