An open Secret rose. Processed in Photoshop Elements with some levels adjustment and burning.
I know, another rose. I’ll get going again this week. Processed in Photoshop Elements and Topaz Simplify.
Playing with colors and blending modes today. This rose was processed using Photoshop Elements with one layer of original, one layer of Sketch/Stamp at 15% opacity and one more layer of colors using a wet media brush. It gave a colorful result!
Secret rose with background of geranium leaves. All processed in Photoshop Elements. Foreground processed with Filter/Brush Strokes/Angled Strokes and dodged. Background processed with Topaz Simplify buz sim. Also did some cloning on the rose photo.
My wonderful husband gave me a new lens for our 34th anniversary! He surprised me with a new Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens. It is so cool. This photo was taken today with the new lens. Processed in Photoshop Elements with adjusted levels, Topaz Simplify and dodging and burning.
Oh boy, another rose! I tried doing something a little different with this one. I used flash when taking this photo. Processed in Photoshop Elements with adjusted levels. Run through Topaz Detail with dynamic range equalization filter. Product was then burned and the saturation was reduced to 75%.
I was playing around with this photo and the Blur/Smart Blur filter. The original was cropped and levels adjusted. Then I ran it through Blur/Smart Blur and used settings of Radius – 3 and Threshold – 25. The other settings were Quality – High and Mode – Overlay Edge. The result was dodged and burned and a gold brush overlay was used to warm up the center of the flower. Hope you like it. Processed as usual in Photoshop Elements.
Ok, back to the flowers! I found this little rose tucked in my rose bush. It was very small due to the hot weather but smoothing it out with Topaz Simplify really makes it look better than it did. This blossom was only about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Processed in Photoshop Elements and Topaz Simplify buz sim. The fine line around the photo is done with a 5 pixel Stroke Selection. When I finish a photo I flatten all the layers and then duplicate the result. I then put a blank layer between the two resulting layers. This blank layer is filled with a solid color I choose that is dark and somewhat predominant in the photo or black. I then reduce the size of the top layer by pulling the corners to bring the photo into the center of the solid layer. Now I have a solid border or frame. Lastly I use my 5 px Stroke Selection picked from a complementary color to surround the photo in layer 2. This completes my three layer finish. I then flatten the layers and have a finished composition. Have a great week everyone!
This little bud is only an inch in diameter. The heat here in the summer really stunts the rose buds. This little one still managed to look pretty even in the hot conditions!! Processed in Photoshop Elements with a high pass filter, adjusting levels and some light burning. Taken this evening about 7 pm.
