Tulips are just starting to bloom here. I processed this in PSE6 with adjusted levels, sharpened and then high pass sharpened again. Topaz Adjust was applied and then a layer of Smart Blur at 50% Opacity was applied over that to soften the grunge look a little. Hope you like it. Have a great weekend.

Here’s another photo processed through PE6 and Topaz Adjust beta 5. I have really enjoyed being a beta tester for Topaz and this new Adjust version is really something! There are a ton of presets including cross process and Lomo settings, cool and warm settings and grunge settings, too! I think that users are going to be very happy with the new version of Adjust.
Settings for this photo were: f/11, 1/60 sec., focal length 55 mm and ISO 200.
A simple little arrangement of roses and rosemary from my garden. Processed in Photoshop Elements 6. I used the lasso tool to select a wide area around the vase and flowers at 50 px. feather.

I love this pastel pink tulip that has surprised me by returning this spring! Processed in Photoshop Elements 6. I used the lasso tool to choose just the blossom and ran a pale pink gradient on it to punch it up ever so slightly. Then I ran a layer of Topaz Simplify cartoon (custom setting) and layered it on top with a Screen blending mode at 35% Opacity. Some slight burning was done and the outline added. Have a great day!
First Secret rose of the season. Processed with an unsharp mask at 100%, adjusted saturation and levels, applied a selective Gaussian blur on one layer at 50% opacity. Also dodged and burned. Photoshop Elements 6 was used in the processing.
Taking advantage of my daffodils before they are all gone! This one is backlit with late afternoon sun. It’s supposed to be rainy and cold the next few days. Processed with Photoshop Elements 6 and only burned.
Over on the north side of our house I have a cluster of narcissus that insists upon blooming in January of each year. We have had a little sun peak out through the fog each afternoon the past few days. Here are some of those narcissus in late afternoon light.
