The first photo is the flowering head of the herb, dill (Anethum graveolens) growing in our garden. I have played with layers and filters in Photoshop in the next two images and have also added some additional material from a photo of actual fireworks in the last image to get the derivatives. Which is your favourite image?

This post is part of the Mandarin Orange Monday meme,

  1. Wonderful colors, Love how the flowers pop out.

  2. Beautiful orange!
    Well done!

  3. Love how you have used the flowers to create an extra dimension to the fireworks.

  4. Cool! Love the transitions from the original to the final one. The contrasting colors work so well in highlighting the details!

  5. Wonderful effects and yes, even without the processing they do like fireworks!

  6. Wowee! From flowers to fireworks;) Great progression..and of course my favourite is your MoM pc ...that combination of colour is really interesting. Thank you again for sharing on Mandarin Orange Monday and sorry I am so late...was away again.


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