    I really like the final image. Could you please give brief explanation of PS workflow?
    Thanks for sharing…Yvonne

  • Hi Yvonne, thanks for your comment… hard to be brief there were many steps, layers and effects used…
    As brief as possible though… took a bud image of mine and copied it (x3) to create the flower, had the moon already. For the ripple I used liquefy, for the coloring hue and saturation and a few different gradients each on their own layer and the reeds & stars are from a ‘shape’ choice. All were copied then flipped (separately) and adjusted to how I liked them… kept everything is on it’s own layer so I can change whatever I want
