Sunny with a touch of green.

Sunny with a touch of green.

Brought this sunflower home yesterday and shot it in my backyard. The tan in the background is my fence. Added three textures… Florabella set lll- Brushed Topaz, skeletal mess- Square 9 and the postcard texture from Flickr friend Sergey. The last texture is not available to the public. I loved it, so I just asked him for it and he kindly obliged. This french postcard comes all the way from Moscow.
Thank you Sergey! Check out his stream. He is an excellent photographer!

Texture trick- For those who work with texture, here’s a trick in Photoshop. There was more writing in the texture, so I just lassoed the writing on the flower, >Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur and moved the radius all the way to the right. It takes the texture off without altering the tones. Make sure you are on the texture layer. Good luck!
Miss Florabella herself, Shana Rae taught me that. =)
