Giant Coneflowers with an Orange Twist

 

Giant Coneflowers with Topax Adj and Textures and CS Frame

Sometimes it is just fun to see what kind of effects you can create when you push a few buttons just to see what will happen.   In this photo I took a picture of the Giant Purple Coneflowers in the Sandbox garden.  After editing them in Photoshop I took it into Topaz Adjust 5 and after trying one preset after another I tried the preset Autumn and really liked it. I took the photo back into Photoshop and added Kim’s latest texture called partings and one from Pixel Dust called memories of Paris.   Then I added a new frame by Rita at Coffeeshop Blog called Vintage Frame 26. 

I am joining Kim Klassen for Texture Tuesday.  Have a great day.

I love this photo. I haven't played much with editing my pics other than Picasa and Ribbet. I love how you can add all the different layers. Some day I'll try something but it all seems confusing to me.
