This is the result of having seen some of Chrissd's wonderful work, and I confess i have pinched one of his methods for this. I had tried zoom blur before with no real success. but this time I have come up with this ... thanks Chris Wink Go visit his website, you will not be disapointed!
I will be catching up with everyone soon, it has been a rough few days, but getting there. Probably be doing a lot of clicking and running, but will get there. I hope everyone is safe and well, take care,
Karen

I would maybe feather the change in the bottom right a bit but I really like it.

I am not normallt one for coloured borders but this one is spot on

There are some really pretty colours in this Karen & I like the position in the frame.Could perhaps do with a touch more feathering where the blur starts but I like your presentation & border work here.

Thank you everyone for a wonderful respose to this ... Kaybee and Janet .. your advice is duly noted and thanks to you both for that. Will watch that in future! ~Also will try the pic again and take your advice on board!
Sparklep, thanks for your comments. I think if you go through his portfolio, his descriptions will tell you more about how he achieves his images, and his website address is on his portfolio page! http://www.floral-artistry.com/
