Peony

I took these earlier today and are not quite what i wanted, It was awkward to get to them ( hence why the white board isnt behind all of the one shot ) and my friend who's garden they are in would't let me pick one the old meany
so anyway i thought maybe some of you would enjoy messing around with them

Re: Peony

Thanks for sharing Palms. Been sort of in a Metallic mood after seeing all of Kaden's posts about Daguratypes at Fred Miranda's site. Enjoyed the play.

The red of the peony looks very rich with the metallic look, nice one Lyle

Re: Peony

Lovely blooms, Palms, and I love the positioning of the peony in the second shot especially. Good for you for working on simplifying the background when you can.

I used a number of Topaz filters and some masking...

Re: Peony

Glazed

Who would have thought Inkscape would have such cool plugins, many of which work directly with bitmaps too. I did vectorize the Peony since the effect I wanted didn't work quite like I wanted in pure bitmap. Did a few additional GIMPy things too of course. Again, thanks for sharing these cool flowers Palms.
