I truly think that there is more beauty in imperfection than perfection, for it is the imperfect things that truly make us beautiful. --me

Outlined in Pink - A Watercolor



Here is another flower picture that I took while out at the Renaissance. I was so frustrated once the pictures were developed because I had forgotten to adjust the shutter speed and aperture. The wind was blowing as well which didn't help. However on a hunch I decided to play with the artistic devices in photoshop. I really like the way the watercolor filter looks on the flower. It gives it a soft appearance that looks intentional and not just out of focus. It's great to salvage these otherwise unusable images.

Cool "art" photo. I'll have to remember this technique should I ever take an out of focus photo. :-)

I haven't Photoshop yet, but I think it offers many and many possibilities and the results are fine.

Wow, that is well done. Don't you just love a good watercolor! Have a terrific day!

Great salvage. Cosmos are one of my favorite flowers. Mine are on the verge of going wild. I have a few single pictures, but soon there will be a forest of them in one of my tiny flower beds.

If i got a picture like that, I wouldn't have a clue how to fix it!

That came out great! Kind of looks like a painting...I love it.
I still can't figure out my corel photoshop thing...I'm so clueless. Someday when I have more time (in like 18 yrs. lol) I just might be able to figure it out.

I like the "watercolor" perspective!

I just discovered these ‘artistic devices’ in PSE yesterday and played with them. What you’ve done here is very ‘kewl’ indeed and you’ve inspired me to ‘play’ a bit more when time permits. Thanks for sharing ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

I couldn't agree more! I LOVE playing with my shots that don't turn out too well! This is beautiful!
