I found some gorgeous Peonies in full bloom on my mile walk to the pharmacy the other day…but I really didn’t care for the way the images turned out…so, of course, this morning I decided to ‘play’ a bit!
I didn’t realize the next image featured a fly and the eyes of two ‘garden decor’ deer until I uploaded.
I decided to get rid of the faux deer–a good choice, in my opinion!
Photoshop’s Artistic Ocean Ripple filter has never really appealed to me–until I ‘played’ with it on this image…and found it added some interest to a very ordinary photo of a Peony.
Combined, these two images took about an hour to process, and the results were entirely worth spending the time to make the ordinary a bit ‘extraordinary’!
You might ask why I bother transforming what are considered dull images?
“Because for me, it’s fun…and everyone needs SOME fun in their lives, don’t they?!?”
