    This is fantastic Linda! Pure magic, I don’t know what you’ve done but it is very effective and that dragonfly there too – well that’s a bonus!

  • Thanks for you kind words Cynthia. The flower was photographed inside in front of a gray board. The background of the pic is a combination of a bokeh layer, a watercolor layer and an image of wispy clouds in the sky and I used a Luminosity blend mode. The dragonfly came from DeviantArt. Then I turned the whole lot b&w infrared in Photoshop.
