Pushing Up Daisies

By chase
A tin can,full of Daisies from my garden.I wanted to make them look as if they grew in the tin can so I had to use the whole clump plus a bit of muck too Wink

The original is just the tin can with the flowers,everything else has been added with masking layers.
The HDR image is made up from 5 frames,combined & tonemapped in Photomatix.

F16 manual mode
F/L 50mm
Raw files converted in Lightroom,textures & layers added in Photoshop.

I suspect this won't be everyone's cup of tea but it's different & I like it Smile

See Brian....I got to use the tin can too Wink

Thanks for taking the time to get this far.
Janet xx

A well created simple image, I like the muted colours & the textures, has a nice 'gritty' look....& the whole image looks (to me) as though it's being projected onto a cinema screen ?...fascinating....Lovely piece of work !!!!
