It promises to be a lovely sunny day here so I'm feeling cheerful enough to upload a floral image Wink. One I took a few months ago but processed only last night.

Thanks for looking and for your C&C on What a lovely view! - glad this raised a few smiles Smile

Lovely swishy movement.
Did you use the warp tool on this? It's one of my favourites but I don't have access to it any more, more's the pity. Or twirl perhaps?

Thanks Barry, Chris, lonely_oryx and Barbara.

Chris: I used the polar co-ordinate filter and then cropped to leave just one side of the resulting image.

A wonderful and colourful capture, Theresa. I don't how you've achieved that 'swirly' effect, but it works very well Smile A super sunny day here, too... Wink
