I took this photo last spring on my back porch. I was trying to get a soft focus pansy and none of the front views worked, so I tried shooting from behind, and this one was my favorite. I used Topaz Detail Soft Looking as well as two French Kiss Textures (Aventura and Lily Pond) to get the painted effect.
