Playing with Photoshop filters. Original photo of the gumnuts is the first, followed by several orange transformations!

This post is part of the Monday Mellow Yellows meme,
and also part of the Mandarin Orange Monday meme.


  1. First of all the gumnuts are a very cool looking plant! I like your digitized versions, probably the last two best with the contrasting background colors. How do you change the color of the background without changing the foreground?

  2. Hello, Jane. To select the background (sky) only, I used the "magic wand" selection tool in Photoshop. This selects the whole of the sky (which is more or less the same shade) and then I can change the colour and texture of background only.

  3. Thanks Nick! I'll play around with that and try it out

  4. Nick I love your work today! Not only have you a great eye for photography...but also for digital art. My very favourite is your last one.. but hard to choose:) thanks for taking part in Mandarin Orange Monday:)

  5. I love the smell of the various Eucalyptus trees, I wish I could get a sniff. I like your color manipulations and the textural details when transformed into a sketch.


I love to hear from you, so please comment. I appreciate constructive criticism as it improves my skills as an amateur photographer.
