This photo was inspired by the beautiful Queen of the Prairie flowers floating about our yard on their long, graceful stems. It was originally done for Kim Klassen’s Start to Finish Class (in which I am woefully behind!) with a frame and the title quote on the image, but for RedBubble I removed both. The title is from “A Summer Song” by Chad and Jeremy. Oh, how I loved that song back in the day…
I made some basic adjustments in LR5 then applied Kim’s likeadream preset and moved to Photoshop CS6 where I added some more contrast and then used two layers of Kim’s Cora, one set to soft light, the other to multiply, both at about 60% opacity.
