Hydrangea Pastels

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 8 December 2011 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This began with a gentle Topaz Adjust 5 and then added 2 textures. You can't beat Topaz for the money. Reasonably priced and upgrades are free - unlike OTHER software I can think of. I have the entire Topaz Suite and certainly need to take advantage of their tutorials and webinars to learn more!

NIKON D300 1/8 second F/11.0 ISO 200 157 mm (35mm equiv.)

I, too, like and use Topaz. Did you upgrade to the new T Adjust 5? Lots more options.
Lovely Hydrangea and colors.

My favorite is that green leaf, which really adds interest to the overall composition.

Another nice painting. I like the green leaf at the bottom to anchor the flower head.
