A macro shot of a lovely Cornflower Head......when I first saw the image on screen, it reminded me
of an explosion of blues....so I've tried to convey that feeling into the final image !!!!!

A b/g image of the same flower, with a radial-blur applied, then overlay the original shot with all
the detail retained.....shot against a white b/g to give it a light/airy feel ?????

Feel free to comment.....I'd be interested to know your reactions..........Grin

Many thanks for your response to 'Morston Quay Pre-sundown'....glad you liked it !!....& a special
thankyou to Ronnie.AG for your UA, you're very kind !!!

Oh very eye catching.
Lovely work, I like that very much.
Well taken and worked.

Single cornflowers are super to take I think.
I did everso well with mine a long time ago.
