My friend had a bunch of flowers and asked me if I'd photograph them . Proteas are the National Flower of South Africa . I lassoed this one , then used Inverse , then used the blur tool and now it looks more like a floating water Lily . What do you think ?

Sorry we couldn't use epz. Thought it was me and my computer . Glad it is now sorted . Must be a great head ache for the team . xx

Thank you everyone who has voted on this one but last night ,Sunday I was commenting on one of your photos and my PC suddenly froze Sad so I closed down and went to bed . Glad to see it is up and running today xx

Love the effect, you've created a very mysterious, watery background.

This is a wonderful presentation of the Protea Mavis..like a painting. It certainly looks as though it is in water..I really love this.
