Geranium in dire need of help!

Please help this poor, lonely geranium blossom reach its full potential and recover its dignity.

Mine is finished in FotoSketcher after a hint of Photoshoping

~~Original~~~ My try

Besides the crop I used some Topaz Adjust, blending and Impressionist. Not sure how much I helped the poor geranium!

Thanks for the play 0lBaldy. Mirrored, simplified by changing to vector then finished with Impressionist.

Re: Geranium in dire need of help!

WOW, for such an uninspired picture I am totally blown away.... such a wealth of talent is here!

Tennie, definitely a nice piece of art work! Well Done!

John, that Mottled effect gave it some nice symmetry and an artistic felling... Nice!

Juergen, A welcome addition.. it was definitely needed and the blurred background makes it stand out well... Good Job!

Peter, I am glad you monkeyed with my picture.... I went ape over it.. It added just the right amount of 'Tang' to a very boring presentation... Oh yea, I like the smudging also!.. Excellent work!

Perverted this (http://www.fontplay.com/freephotos/f...p121308-15.jpg) background and extracted (way too long spent on that exercise) the plant and fed the result into FotoSketcher for this result.

Re: Geranium in dire need of help!

Looks like a much more comfy location Lyle.. me thinks all the work you did made it HAPPY!!

This lil fellow was sitting all by itself on a windowsill at the end of a long hospital hallway with nuttin but a yucky roof top to look at..

It looks great Lyle, Thanks!

Re: Geranium in dire need of help!

These great edits.

I created animated water reflecting in Sqirlz Water Reflections.

I set dry brush and texturizer with foto frame.
