For Silly Tuesday, I decided to give this one a painterly look :))

Barbara from Oakland, United States

This is GORGEOUS! 5 stars all the way around!!! I love the neon of the purples. Did that come from the filters or what that on the flower? This is an awesome image, Jack. Oh, and I love the square format. Perfect!

23 Feb 2010 6:08am

@Barbara: Thanks. I used the Watercolor preset in Topaz's Simplify plug-in.

SOUL AFLAME from The bosom of Mother Nature, United Kingdom

A little heavy on the processing for my taste Jack, and I preferred your natural shot. But, you know that I believe in experimentation and creativity, so not a criticism by any means, just a personal observation.

23 Feb 2010 10:39am

@SOUL AFLAME: Twas a plug-in effect. Done mainly for the fun of Silly Tuesday.

Florence from Paris, France

I do prefer them the former and more natural version Jack, but it's a nice and colorful attempt to creativity. It's good to try something, always.

23 Feb 2010 10:42am

@Florence: It was as much for Silly Tuesday as for creativity. Used a plug-in.

tataray from St Laurs, France

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Beautiful job Jack !!! Looks like some of the work I saw the photographers selling at the art show recently......and it's interesting....most of the photographers that actually sell things, are doing stuff like this, not selling "straight" photography anymore.....and some of the art shows are actually making a separate category in the prize judging....for "digital art".......Maybe that's the business we should get in to!!!

23 Feb 2010 11:29pm

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

An interesting filter with great selective treatment that still maintains some of the detail we saw in the petals.

MMC Photos from THE COLONY, United States

I love the flowers. I downloaded a Topaz plug-in, and I thought I got a bug on the computer and it ran slow. Has anyone else had this trouble?

25 Feb 2010 5:05am

Self-Indulgence from Chicagoland, United States

Not so sure if it's silly but it would make a good greeting card with the blocky paint look. Like a rich watercolor.
