Late last night I arrived home from the beach. This morning I went into the garden to see what had changed while I was away. First thing I noticed was that the Columbine flowers have set seed and are ripe for picking and spreading for next years bloom. As I was picking them I thought they were pretty even in this stage of their life and I made a shot with the app ClassicPAN. I laid them on my white patio table for a solid background and for soft light under the umbrella. I also cut some seed heads that were forming from my Hosta plants. Then of course I had to photograph them while I had the idea. Here's the process I used on the botanical images. I opened the original image file in ScratchCam and made several selections of ScratchCam effects that I thought would work well together. I then blended two of them in Iris. Then, I opened that file in Bad Camera and applied some effects and frame. I ran that file through ArtistaOil and applied effects and borders there as well. Then I blended that file back with the BadCamera file and finished with sharpening in PerfectPhoto..oh and somewhere in there I added a schooch of DynamicLight~normal and a Grungetastic border; then framed them out in Crop'n'Frame to finish.
