How about a view through a frosted window?

Re: Creative interpretations: Butterfly in Flowers

Thanks for the compliment, Palms. When I first saw the image, it seemed to scream frosted glass to me. I duped the background, intensified the contrast with curves and used the distort/frosted glass filter. I then set the layer blend mode to soft light. To increase the effect, I duped this layer several times. For the window, I found a picture of a frosted bathroom window with a roll of toilet paper on the sill. I cut out the frosted glass and TP, and cloned the missing parts back on to the picture. I placed the butterfly in back of this and voila!

funny Gerry that you saw it as screaming for frosted glass, because when i first saw it i thought of the aged photo technique that you done on the village car ! ! !

I'm glad you liked the aged photo technique. I got the idea from one of Corey Barker's videos on the NAPP web site some weeks ago.
