I was playing around with the processing of this grouping of three yellow marguerites. This end result was processed in Topaz Simplify twice. Both times settings were custom set in the cartoon range. The edge line color was inversed to white. It was finished with some burning. All done in Photoshop Elements 6. Thought it made a bright greeting card kind of look. Or maybe a poster. Hope it brightens your day.
These are my early daffodils which are blooming already. I captured these in late afternoon light and then applied the Orton effect in Photoshop Elements 6. It was beautiful and around 70 degrees here today. Rain is on the way, though.
Thought I would spread a little spring-like color to those of you who are enduring a long, white winter. Let’s hope Punxsutawney Phil is right in his prediction for an early spring! This bowl contains cyclamen, pansies and an errant freesia. Processed in Photoshop Elements 6 with Topaz Simplify adjusted, burning and a frame made with a burlap pattern overlay.
Just a teacup and violas set up on an antique washstand. I tried this with flash and without. This one came out the best for the processing I used. This was processed in Photoshop Elements 6 using Topaz Simplify cartoon. I used my own preset and adjusted it to achieve the painted look.
Camera settings: Fujifilm FinePix S700, F/3.5, 1/4 sec., ISO 800, focal length 6.3 mm. No flash.
