Leucodendron Center

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 30 January 2012 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Welcome back my Leucodendron, which is showing off it's beautiful center. The textures gave this a nice warm luminance, but I did add a small amount of cool photo filter to pop the red a bit. 3 textures and one color temp filter.

Thank you to everyone for the nice comments on the recent triptych! Flowers and plants so often get overlooked.

Let's be sure and apply 'stars' by clicking to the right of one another's image - I always try to do that to be sure a good image gets recognized and rewarded!

The textures you used bring out the beauty in this unusual flower. What is a color temp filter? Thanks for the reminder about the stars.

30 Jan 2012 7:27pm

@Anita: Thanks, Anita! In PS, under adjustment layers, you'll find one for 'photo filter.' There are warming, cooling and lots more.
