Anemone II

By cattyal  
The same Anemone as yesterday - it had opened a bit somewhat by the time I returned to it this morning.

it was a good job I took a few pics of it this morning though - I foolishly left it sitting on the window sill and despite having plenty of water the heat was just too much. By the time I spotted it this afternoon it had keeled over.

Ah well - there seems to be plenty in the garden and I'll certainly be planting more next year Smile

Again some Lucisart Whyeth applied to the flower - I still like that plugin!

Hi Alison,

Could you explain who/what Lucisart Whyeth is?
(For those of us who have a fear of all things PS!.)

Thanks folks - the flower has recovered a bit but looks a tad rough - I'll be cutting another from the garden next time methinks!

Tim - this is Lucisart - well this is the horribly expensive version of Lucis now available. Once upon a time they did a much smaller and simpler version which includes a setting called Whyeth. In their wisdom this smaller plugin was discontinued but I'm one of the fortunate ones that bought it before they did that. Nowadays a good option is Topaz Adjust which is an excellent bit of kit and a reasonable price.

The Whyeth setting gives the details a bit, or a lot, of oomph - depending on how heavy handed I am Smile - I'll pop the original pic up shortly so you can see the difference - with a bit of background tweaking too as I omitted to bounce any light back on the right hand side.

Of course the effects can be done without the help of plugins but hey - I like the plugins Smile

Actually I use Paint Shop Pro - have done for donkeys years so find it far quicker to work with Smile

I can't say I ever have - maybe I should put some thought into it one day.....

Thanks Kate - happily there's a reasonable amount in the garden still and they're always handy in an emergency Smile

Thanks Paul - I do have a particular fondness for blue and purple anemones - mainly because they're pretty easy to photograph - which does kinda help!
