A pond lilly in our fish pond, taken from as close as I could get without falling in ... lol ... in P S - used radial blur, zoom, twice, and got this! These are such fun to do and all thanks to Chrisd. I have to say I so enjoy doing these that I have been trawling though loads of my old flower shots ... ones that I thought would not make the grade and this treatment has put new life into them .... saving them from the recycle bin! I will post the odd one now and then. This was taken deliberately for such an outcome I have to say, and in doing so I also have what I think is a cracking straight shot of the lilly that i will post a bit later on. Hope that your weekend has been good, take care all and as ever .... many thanks to all for stopping, looking and commenting! it is ALWAYS very much appreciated!
