It almost doesn't look like a flower at this magnification, but it makes a very appealing abstract.
Kay: It's actually a Dahlia flower bud, Martin. I added a little vignette and blur to it. Thanks!
very nice detail... love the smooth areas close to the borders...
Kay: Thank you very much for your comment smile I added a radial blur to it, as well as a vignette. smile
Nice pp, makes me wish I was more adventurous/experimental.

Beautiful Kay. I instantly recognised it as a Dahlia. Great processing. Kind regards, Neil.
Kay: Thank you, Neil smile Hope your Winter is going well. (It's Winter in SA, isn't it?
That's a cracker spot ! An invitation to softness.
Kay: Merci beaucoup, Florence !
This works very well with the blurring - it's almost as though you are being drawn into the very centre of the flower. Great shot.
Kay: Nice compliment from a very good photographer. I'm honored! Thanks, Ingrid!

I think it is good, though it looks like a set of hungry teeth to me. well executed, and a big mysterious gap in the middle
Kay: Thank you, Alex. smile
A great abstract with beautiful light and DOF.
Kay: Thank you, Red Pen!
Nice one, feels kinda sultry.
Kay: Thanks Nigel!
Reizender Schuß, Kay. Es ist wirklich eine ausgezeichnete Sicherung. Du mußt uns erklären, wie du dies tust. Bitte :p
Kay: Aw, Bisola. Um ehrlich zu sein, fand ich eine Tätigkeit on-line um in Photoshop zu pflegen. Ich habe genügende Erfahrung in der Anwendung, aber, einen Abbildung Blick groß nicht genug wirklich zu bilden. Ich kann nicht das mischende Werkzeug oder Schichtschablone, usw. benutzen. So tut diese Tätigkeit sie alle für mich. Ich kann sie Ihnen schicken, wenn Sie möchten.
