    Wanda, what a beautiful watercolour effect. It really does look like it was hand painted on paper. It's lovely and subtle and alive.
    Very nice.

        Mama Alligator, thank you so much I love Hummingbirds, so I spent some enjoyable moments on this one. Thanks again, kind comments sometimes is the only thing that keeps us going when were down

        Trimoon, thank you!!! Coming from the master, and my inspiration I have been trying to figure out what you do, but I'm not even close I'm afraid! I REALLY love your last entry, but you never have a bad one do you Thanks

        Wanda

          here's my attempt at this one. all I did was use curves and experiment with lots of different filters.

                David, I love the 3D effect you achieved. The flowers seem to pop right out of the picture...I wanted to pick one! Great use of filters and curves.

                  Everyone does such great work here! I enjoyed working on this mini-challenge and I'm pleased with the results I ended up with.

                  I tried Trimoon's way of doing things, but got lost in the process and ended up on a different path. You have really beautiful work!

                  So here's kinda some stuff I did:

                  (I'll try and be short)
                  Extracted the flowers and bird and then created the background using filter>render>clouds.
                  Applied crosshatch strokes filter to bird and flowers.
                  Merged some layers and created mask and painted away!
                  Used smudge tool to blend background and bird and flowers.
                  Filter>stylize>emboss with soft light
                  Filter>texturizer>sandstone.

                  I know there is more I did, but I can't remember it all- sorry.

                      JLC:
                      Dorking away at things is what many of us do best around here! Another very nice rendition & plentiful detail.

                      David:
                      These mini's are getting to be a habit with you! It's great to see you're having fun with these.

                      Steve:
                      Breathtaking.

                      Chiquitita:
                      You could turn a horrible image into a great work of art with your skills! Glad this one was among the better ones to work with.

                      Ya wanna do something fun sometime? Go back and look through some of the minis from a month or so back. You guys and girls just keep getting BETTER!

                        The mini challenges are a great idea Danny, and loads of fun. I'm getting really into photo art now, and I'm having a great time playing around with it.

                            Thanks, Wanda! I'm learning so much from this forum. I'm hooked and can't stop trying new stuff!

                            I hope one day I can create art that's worthy enough of posting in the gallery section.

                              The gallery isn't sacred ground nor reserved for anyone. It's a great way to share your works with a group of folks not as likely to find them in this forum. Gallery postings frequently garner additional feedback and ideas.

                              Believe me: The gallery is a friendly place and your works are definitely worthy. And if I may take a moment to put on my 'moderator of this forum' hat: I know of what I speak.

                              Go for it.

                                What a great shot! These little guys aren't easy to photograph.

                                Don--interesting abstract. I'm going to have to stick a note on my monitor reminding me to finish the edges on my pics. The framing effects you've been using really add a very nice touch.

                                I went with the impressionist filter on this one. You'll need 7 dups of the background. Each number represents a layer working from the bottom to the top. On this filter I usually change the paper color to image. If the brushes don't offer multiple size, up it to 4-5 and reduce the smallest size to 4-5%. Choose family of brushes whenever offered. If parts of the image are dark, increase the brightness before applying the filter. I also usually increase the blur slightly.

                                1. watercolor--watery spatter
                                2. watercolor--damp translucent (70%)
                                3. watercolor--soft water sketch (50%)
                                4. watercolor--soft daubs on fine paper (33%)
                                5. filter--stylize--find edges (overlay 25%)
                                6. gaussian blur soft sketch (soft light 30%)
                                7. choose a light and dark color from the bird (I used brown tones). Filter--sketch photocopy (lower detail and darkness) (color burn 25%)
                                8. Add a pattern fill layer in soft light at 70% for texture.
