Wishing you all a happy weekend with this smiley osteo. The original was shot on F2.8; I isolated the flower centre using the elliptical marquee tool, applied the zoom blur filter, overlaid a shot of some vase detail and blended it back using the overlay filter.

Thanks for looking; who knows, I may even have time to get out on the site this weekend Smile

I love the composition of this and the way you have used the very centre of the flower as sharp focus Jane
