Cyclamen in Pink

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 6 February 2012 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

Lensbaby capture. I'm having a blast experimenting with texture techniques.
Topaz tonal effects gives this image some other neat tones too. I love experimenting with warm versions and cool versions.

One texture layer and one smart blur layer.

An afterthought: I'm 'hearing' more people say how much 'FUN' they are having with their photography right now! There are those trying new techniques and enjoying their new results; there are those not posting as often so they can play with new post processing techniques; there are those trying new creative things with their cameras in the field - we ARE supposed to have fun!
