First brights then golds to brown
Colors softly blending.
Autumn’s lovely but I’ve found
It lacks a happy ending.
So much mystery locked in blooms. I teased some out through my Canon 7D’s Canon EFS 17-85mm (f4-5.6) in macro mode. And then?
Opened original in PS4 through bridge and RAW. Then cropping and repositioning followed by custom application of Topaz Adjust 5, AlienSkin’s Bokeh2 to discover the effective DOF, OnOne Perfect Effects 3, okay a number of layer adjustments to re-design the dynamic range, then, AlenSkih’s SnapArt3 Pastels to magnify selective textures muted back. Of course the textures and brushes are custom to reshape and tease the energy motion out for all to feel. Great floral therapy.
