Oh I don't know how you have made this,
but it is a very beautiful image.
Well done.

Thankyou Barbara

Image is a close up of a flower (don't know which) taken outside local florist shop.
Seperate layer created and circle path created and filled white, feather put on and delete pressed to create edge of circle, then just using pen tool to draw shaped paths to show light and reflections on different layers, each shape filled with varying degrees of white opacity then path deleted (this is why lines are crisp and not blurred) on each layer so as not to interfer with main floral image. Finally main image (flower) has has had a spehirize filter placed on it to make it look magnifyed through marble.

Finally unused layers deleted and image flattened from PSD.

Have fun try it at home using photoshop Grin

Thank you very much for that detailed explanation
Simon. Interesting indeed. I'd struggle to be so
clever, but I'll make notes.
Again, very well done you.
