I've gone Crazy over Flowers
It was too hot to ride this early afternoon so I decided to dive into some photo editing of recent flowers blooming around my house and garden.
These are creations for fun.
This is a cosmos in my vegetable garden right after a rain.
Of course it looks nice, but I decided to see what some filters would do.
I used the Filter>Stylize>Wind
I then used Topaz and used the Preset in Simplify > Buzsim
Somewhere I decided to use a separate layer and go with Levels>to dark>Radial Blur and drop that layer under the flower layer.
I changed the opacity of the 'levels' layer so it wouldn't over power the rest of the picture.
Other edits for today:
The temps are a bit more friendly outside now, and I've recovered from a morning of hot sticky work pulling noxious weeds from Badger's pasture and cutting weeds from underneath the electric fence...
I think I should go out to play now...
