(Please enlarge to see details!) I came upon a tiny patch of cornflowers and loved exploring them individually with my macro lens. This was composed in the camera (not cropped) and post-processed with a combination of effects: two layers (different blending modes and opacities, masked) of the new oil paint filter in Photoshop CS6 (I finally upgraded as my Christmas gift to myself) plus a texture layer (“Meadow” – Tableaux collection) from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/11, 1/60 sec., ISO 1600, heavy overcast, handheld)
