Sunflower

By NDODS    
Well what can I possibly say. I think I have fallen in the proverbial photographers dung heap and come up smelling of flowers "literally". Not wishing to be labelled as a stuckist I have chosen to upload another image which was created alongside my last two uploads and which forms four pieces in a group produced whilst at University studying Post Processing and Workflow. I loved creating the pieces even though their construction was rather trying at times working with different layers and blending modes, making transparencies, and various brushes from scratch. However I gained a lot of experience and had a wale of a time in the process.

Thank you to you all for your continued support, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

I thank you again for your comments, votes and thoughtful words. Whilst at the same time I would like to thank: Danbran(Danny), CarolG(Carol), RonnieAG(Ronnie), Nikonuser(Cliff), Holmewood(Cathy), EMJAYCEE(Joan), Williamsloan(Willie), Myrab(MYra), Fifcat(Lavina), Badgerfred(Fred) and last but not least Lynniesefforts(Lynnie) for presenting me with their most precious User Awards.

I sincerely hope that you all have a great dat ahead whatever that may bring.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin
