Re: Poppy pics

Shari...your poppies are irresistable! Kudos to all for some truly expert work, and Peter, your last one blew me away.

Decided to do just the petal parts, experimented with layers, a dash of GB and a final blend mode of ...one of the "burns", forgot which. Color burn I think.

And to Palms and Peter- I can spend hours in your photostreams on Flickr. I am SO jealous!

Re: Poppy pics

Veronica- A great idea. I never thought of putting them into a triptych. And they just glow. Lovely.

Re: Poppy pics

Peter-Another great one. Do you have a tut for making your backgrounds? I was trying to do it with your azalea picture and it keeps turning out looking like I'm using vegetable soup for the background.

Welllll not really as I do something diffent every time, (not that I've been messing with this for very long).
A quick suggestion though:-
Stack allyour pics, dupe the bottom one then fill the botom one with a colour of your choice (the base colour).
Add masks to the rest of the layers and then "Render-Diffence Clouds to each mask, (you can tweak them afterwards, change the blending modes of the layers, then you could do some colour adustment layers and clip them.
The possibillities are endles and every time a different result.
when nearly finished do a Merge visible while keeping the layers intact, change the blend to overlay and then Bas Relief it, this adds a little more depth, then fade the opacity down a bit if it's too harsh.

Hope this helps.

Peter

Re: Poppy pics

Thanks Lyle & Shari.
Wouldn't it be breathtaking if every pic submitted was displayed on one wall together? Imagine the POW factor!
