But, of course, I had to ‘play’ with them by adding a bit of the Horizontal Grain Option from the Textures Filter, which gave a more dramatic look!
I had some time on my hands (the place was clean and the laundry folded away!), so I dabbled with other Artistic Filters, finding something very nice happening when I applied Neon Glow.
On this very dreary, gray Saturday morning, I felt I needed to ‘play’ more, just because!
Here’s what these two look like after applying a bit of Glass Filter, utilizing the Glass Blocks option:
Two ‘ordinary macros’ quickly became just a tiny bit surreal and much more ‘painterly’, with a tendency to look as is they had been ‘touched’ by Georgia O’Keeffe!
Having never tried the Glass Block option in all my years of using Photoshop (TM), I found it worked very , very nicely for these delicate pinks, and the two white roses I also worked at this morning!
Pretty amazing that all it took to chase away the blah, gray morning was a bit of pink, some white, and a funny little filter called Glass Blocks!
