Hi all,
Here's another bit o'fiddling with my Iris flowers.
Many thanks indeed for all the nice C&C's on the Iris Blooms,
and the welcome's back after my wee break.
Cheers,

Thank you very much Johanna and all Smile

I don't have any fancy software ..
I just unite a chosen free background with my flower photo.
I used the freehand select tool and roughly go around my flowers, copy and paste
onto the background. Then carefully use the eraser tool to clean away any of
the original unwanted background.
Hope that's of some help.

It's obviously the colours that do it because these and purple crocus are amongst my favourite flowers. Superbly captured and presented !
