Lily's green world

    Newer Older

    I started out with an image of a water lily partly in sun, partly in shade, and then began playing with Topaz filters and textures. I took some guidance from a tutorial by Leslie Nicole on using textures with a black background (parts of my original background were black). From that point, it was all about experimenting with blending modes and opacities. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 215mm [430mm in full-frame 35mm equivalent], f/8, 1/500 sec., ISO 200, filtered afternoon sun, handheld) Post-processing in Topaz Simplify (flower only, oil painting preset at 75% opacity) and textures (Ciboulette5184 and Deco Verte) from Leslie Nicole's Textures 2 collection at French Kiss Textures.
