Digital Bloom...

Today I thought I'll show you something different - an image digitally enhanced from a photo that I would have thrown away - normally. But then I thought - hey - maybe that's still usable - let's see what's coming out of this. And here it is: an abstract image of a decaying flower (a gladiola) and below is the original. So - think about twice before throwing away a bad photo...
I just liked the colours in this one and the painterly quality about it...


the original

"Gladiolus" (Iridaceae)
glads, Gladiolen

Hi Jael - I used the painting filter in photoshop!

you're very right, the photoshopped version looks like a painting. i keep on looking at it again and again, the picture just seems to draw me into relaxing my thoughts with it.

Hi Betchai - thanks for visiting. I found the colours very soothing in this photo and thought I have to save that. Photoshop can save a lot - lol!
