Sun Shiny Day
SmugMug Daily Link
I found myself traipsing through a field of sunflowers this morning. Darn near over my head, close rows, and most past their prime didn't lend well to any super shots.
I guess I'm in a pp kindof mood. Nothing wrong with the sooc shot below, I just felt like seeing what else I could do with it. I used the Picasa pencil sketch filter and then darkened the shadows and did the HDRish filter too to bring out some details. I used the Tint feature to turn the print green. In PSE7, I then quick selected the sunflowers and bee (3 layers total) and altered the colors. There was quite a bit of work with the clone took and eraser to get some of the flower petal tips just right. Lastly, I used Picasa to add a green colored dark vignette.
