Redone & re(something) with AHB. I'm still not pleased with the result but I'm sure getting a lot of practice.

Re: Big Red Flower

Cut it out and put it on a background. Over sharpened it and kept going back and forth with the diffuse filter in PS...something magic happened when I adjusted it with S/H

Re: Big Red Flower

Outstanding work by everyone.
Lyle, especially so. Does that technique lend itself to other images? I mean, more simple, less complex. The background was simple to start with and your style here added so much extra detail. Amazing.

Re: Big Red Flower

I tend to play at the seat of my pants (with the more then occasional binge; lol) so I don't know to what type of images that this technique would be friendly to. Do appreciate the comments though Veronica.

The process is relatively simple (for a simpleton like me; lol). I run DCSpecial's ICE4 filter followed by GREYCstoration and then used this result as a mask for the original (made the darks transparent). I then ran Plastic Wrap Script-fu for the gloss step and added some wood texture and color (brownish) for the polished carved wood result.

Re: Big Red Flower

when i'm working on filters in filter forge, i often require a test image. these, as often as not, come from RP and this forum just because i save so many to work on and i save to my album by month. so, this month i happened to have the 'big red flower' when i was testing filters and came up with these:
