The flowers are beautiful! I love the delphiniums and how did you do the second one? The one with all the yellow? It's gorgeous!
I think all your experiments turned out very well!
Some excellent photo manipulation.
Thanks. All the shots were manipulated (horrible word) using Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2, very much a poor man's program but one that I know my way around after many hours of tinkering. The one that you like, Carolyn, is an effect known as Kaleidoscope, the picture was originally just a close up of a small patch of Stonecrop.
Beautiful images John.
Very painterly. I think I might like the effects better than the ones in Photoshop.
I enjoy the variety of styles you used to photograph these flowers. I especially like the black background of the red flower. It really adds impact to the image.
Clever images John! I particularly like the softness of the Pink flower! It looks to be an Orchid?
Thanks for taking the time to comment. I'll try to answer any questions via a comment or e-mail within the next day or two (no hard questions, please!).
