A wild and crazy interpretation of a canna leaf I shot back in September at the Tower Hill Botanical Garden in West Boylston, MA. The leaves are long gone here but I had a ball playing with this image.

I used all kinds of filters – Nik Color Efex Pro Contrast Color Range, Topaz Adjust and Simplify, and Filter Forge Metalizer for the metallic effect.

Since I’m not (usually) a winter shooter, I plan to do more experimenting and there will be more abstracts to come!

    This is fabulous, Anita! You obviously started with a very well-composed image, but I love how much you enhanced it with your experimentation. The impression of raised texture, something like thick acrylic paints, is especially appealing. Well done!

  • Thank you so much for your wonderful comments and the fave, Celeste! You know how much I enjoy playing with filters, and this image seemed to call out for some playful experimentation.
