Very late in getting this edit out but hey here it is! 🙂 When I first picked this image I really thought it was the way to go. Well folks creative work never fails to surprise, impress, and at times frustrate. I think part of my struggles with what to do with my image of Dtps. Joy Sara Lady ‘Nancy’ come from the fact that I like the image as it was. Looking back I picked the image because I liked it more than I picked it because it was a good candidate for editing. That said I have learned and discovered new techniques and looks, but we’ll save the reflecting for next month which Robyn at Captivate Me – the founder of this challenge – has declared Review Month.
This week I was pretty stumped. Playing around with the original I found that I liked the tropical postcard like effect I achieved starting with the Basic Lithography5 1.01 effect by Trulyscene Artfx 1. Next I added a gradient and lowered the opacity. Finally I increased the vibrance and did a little crop. Now all it needs is some text like “Aloha from Hawaii” or what have you! After all most orchids are tropical.
