    What a fun abstract use of the liquify filter and blending modes. I love all the movement and texture you have created with them. It’s almost hypnotic as your eye wanders around the image following the various swirls and twirls. I’m not a fan of the glowing rectangle, but I can see your point for using it, as it does immediately focus your attention on the center. Very creative results!

    Great detail, looks like a very complicated piece of hand done art. My eye still floats all over it, but when I turn my head to make it a vertical (either direction - if you do it fast it is even more fun) I see tentacles in the square that look loke tree roots framed by the soft art around it and all of a sudden it comes together for me.

    Liquid Abstract

    Pretty simple to create this one...I just took a photo of some dried flowers, duplicated it 5 times and applied the Liquify filter in different ways to each layer. I then changed the blending modes and opacity of each layer until I got an image I liked...along with a few Hue/Sat and Curves adjustments. The middle rectangle with the soft glow around it was created at the end as a way to create some contrast with the "liquid" and organic shapes. Without it, the image has some interesting shapes but your eye goes all over the place.

    I took this snapshot a "few" years back and it scanned OK. Typical Italian village look.

    I did this work about a year ago just for the heck of it. All I can say is that it had about 20-25 layers using loads of layer masks to hide or reveal only certain portions of each layer. I extensively used layer blending modes as well to help create some of the effect. A few layers were blurred...
