Photo Art Friday with Macros

I should be getting ready for our trip to NY, but I just had to see if I could meet Bonnie's Photo Art Friday challenge first: share a macro image with any kind of chosen manipulation.  Like Bonnie, I chose three macro floral images to layer and blend, but I also added the "watercolor" artistic filter in PSE.  Finally, I brightened the image with RadLab's "Lights On."


Below are the images I used:

Great blending of the flowers (same idea that many of us had) - I especially like the ghost image of the pink flower - those petals really add interest. Happy PPF

I'm a big fan of macro photography. Each individual photo you selected are bold and vibrant. The overlays in two are great! I gather the yellow flower proved a bit of a challenge. Had the orientation been the same as the other two, the result would have been spectacular. My humble two cents.

Safe travels.
