Yup, those are Texas bluebonnets. I hear they are pretty sparse this year. Bad weather for the flowers.

Lyle, you did a superb job with the Monet preset in DAP. DId you use the default settings or did you make any changes? Do you remember what other tweaks you threw in?? I love your result.

From San Antonio south to Corpus Christi, they are better than I have ever seen them... but North of San Antonio... very sparse.

Thanks Fran. DAP's just a tool for me. I did many other GIMPy things (can't remember; do these at the seat of my pants; lol). Many contrast blending and Xero Supersmooth filter blending and some color enhancements. Maybe missed a few steps for sure. DAP is good; just not good enough for me. Personally don't think any one tool is.

Re: Girls in Wildflowers

I mix and match, tweak and blend. Seems like each layer depends on how the previous layer turned out. Do the rest of you have a vision of where you are going when you start working or does it just kind of develop as you go? I'm just curious how other people work.

lol; seldom do Becky. The render really does, more then not, take a life of its own when I render them. That's the fun and adventure that has kept me at this hobby for so many years. This doesn't included targeted render types of course (dare I say Legos; lol).

Re: Girls in Wildflowers

Hmmm... I just don't think Legos would do it with this photo. Now don't get me wrong -- I have 2 grown sons and LOVE Legos. We spent some great time together with them spread over the entire living room floor. I'm saving those Legos for future grand-babies, not using them on wildflower pictures.

How about a Lite-Brite instead.

Re: Girls in Wildflowers

I thought it would be interesting to play with the new natural media brushes with the smudge tool

and

see what happened if I put a bevel and emboss layer style on the mixer brush layer.

gorgeous girls. Thanks for the play
