OK, I went a little crazy with this one. I used a layer of Fractalius set to Linear Light and the colors are pretty wild, but I like the effect. This takes me back to the 60’s – I guess I’m showing my age, but that’s all right with me!

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

I am a photographer living in Massachusetts and my passion is flowers. I take the time to reveal the special beauty of each flower and I hope that comes through as you look at my work.

    Yes, it does look psychedelic and would fit right in with those Peter Max posters from the ’60s! Experimentation is always good, and this has a fun and playful feeling.

  • Thank you, Celeste – I do remember those Peter Max posters! I did have fun with this – the bright colors were a nice counterpoint to a dreary March day.

    Very nicely done Anita! Flowers are always a good subject for going a little crazy with, as I enjoy doing myself at times. Beautiful bright colours make this a standout favourite for me. :)george

  • Thank you so much for those kind words, George. Flowers really are a good subject for going a bit crazy – you don’t have to worry about how they feel about the treatment!
