Delightfully blue cornflowers were growing where the background was close and cluttered, so I pulled the flowers and some buds away (via masked layers in Photoshop) and applied motion blur to the background. I added a texture layer to complete the image (“Clair Obscur” from Les Textures 2 at Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures). (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 35mm macro, f/8, 1/100 sec, ISO 100, overcast, handheld).
