Photoshop Play

I was out in the garden yesterday and was snipping away on my clematis when I thought, hmmmmmmm, I wonder how this would turn out as a screened design. I just love these little balls of swirly-ness that form after the flower petals have drifted away. Oh, and Abby likes them too, she thought I brought her a new toy. I didn't let her play with it for long as I need to look and see if these are poisonous for cats. Up first is the original photo.

Then I started playing around with several ways to make a black and white image. I created three different images using different settings and filters for each. I like how each of these turned out and I'm not sure at this point if I have a favorite. I think I will make a screen with all three of them and then test the screened results to see if the differences show up or not.

Today is the Hearts for Anna benefit event. Please consider helping this lovely artist. You can help by taking a look at the fabulous art work that has been donated and see if there is something that you just can't live without. There are some wonderful pieces available.
