Phalaenopsis

Original is a photo I took back in 2006 at the Montreal Botanical Gardens. Played with in DAP using the Pastel template. Further tweaked in PSPv9.

Look forward to seeing how others play with it.

Nice Pic, Gene. Thanks for the play.

I do like DAP and your rendition looks great.

Grant, nice frac touch.

I played with textures, Frac and blended an Impressionist layer into all... Not so sure about the outcome, though. Well, I post anyway

Enjoying the different renditions. Made a few adjustments and merged overlays, finished up using Impressionist for texture and strokes. Nice image to work with, thanks.

Re: Phalaenopsis

Decided to make a seamless tile out of my last effort as well (for all the wallpaper lovers out there).

GeePee,
Wow my brother, excellent work. I love how you muted down the lavenders and magentas. From your crop all the way to the finest of tweaks what a beautiful rendition.

Re: Phalaenopsis

I'm amazed at how many different, wonderful ways one photographed can be interpreted. I dabbled in Photoshop, went to DAP Benson, and dabbled some more in Photoshop.

Nice one, Grant. Especially love the colour changes you did.

Never used Fractals myself. They can add interesting aspects to images. Appreciate your kind words, Amica. And Thanks for playing.

Glad you had fun with the play. What presets in Impressionist do you use for the textures & brushstokes, John?

Real nice play, Lyle. But that seamless Tile rendition is a Wow!. Can you point me to a tutorial or something that would explain how I'd do that? Based on your results, that image would make an outstanding note card image.

Ooooh 3D even. <grin>

Really love how you gave the petals a mother-of-pearl finish. Well done. And thanks for playing

You and I both, Fran. (Amazed that is. <smile>) Nice play. DAP can produce some outstanding results. Really like the brushstrokes here.

Question Peoples: I've seen several participants mention using BuZZ. Would that be the now free BuZZ Pro 3 plug-in? (It shows as Buzz.stack in PSPv9) Was wondering where I might find some tuts or basic info/help in how the plun-in can be best used.
