This pansy is all dressed up and ready to party. She started out as a purple and white gal, and I gave her the full treatment – Topaz Lens Effects Motion Blur, Topaz Simplify BuzzSim, and just a touch of Redfield’s Soft Touch (a free plug-in that adds a painted look to photos – it’s fun to play with!). And she’s finished off with the Berrylishous texture from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures..

Nikon 300S and Nikon 105mm f/2.8 micro lens.

Party On!
