Same image, played with art. Forgive my flight of fancy, or a fancy flight....How was it done? I won't tell this too often, but for my friends....it was done entirely in Nik's Color Efx Pro 4. The image I pre-visualized for the initial image sits right in front of you. The mystique of it is better viewed full screen. On my 32" monitors it looks stunning. So I guess this will be my wallpaper for the balance of May as these are Spring blooms. The do come in pink and in white.
Added were color, grain and glow in varying degrees. There is no grain in the original image. The glow is a diffusion making it unsharp. But then, that was the idea.
