Tomas Turecek from Czech Republic

Nice vivid colours but I would probably take some negative space away from left and top. Great post processing - is there big difference between Snap Art 2 and 3?

19 Jan 2012 4:56pm

@Tomas Turecek: Thanks, Tomas! Only difference is some screen options in the program - not the results. When you look at the upper stamen on the left and the topmost petal at the top - both are equal distance from the frame edge. Never want to crowd the stamen. That is why it is framed like it is.

Calusarus from St Sorlin en Valloire, France

Splendid. And the painting, and the shot !

Nice shot, vivid colors. Beautiful converted to an oil painting.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

This is just so hard to believe that this is the result of a filter and post-processing! It is so real with great textures and beautiful results!
