    Three versions, because Iris is my favourite flower. It's too bad they don't last longer. I wish they bloomed all summer!:smile:

    (Thanks Igor for helping with the Anisotropic questions I had...appreciated!!)

    Hi Bob! Thanks for the compliment! #1 is the original. It's hard to improve on a natural Iris, but fun to try.:biggrin:

    I like all three. THe darker color of #2 is very appealling to me but you have left lots of PS artificts on 2. Particularly the edge of the flowers against the leaves. The leaves have a line where you didn't get a tight enough fit on your processing selection.

    Keis,

    For #2, there wasn't any "selecting" at all. I used the Cardiff action, and it is it's normal look to produce a border, often in thin black, and/or in colour around areas in an image. On another site, there was a comment about an additional green "halo" which was too much of a distraction and I removed it on the version you see here. I could further remove the edges that remain, but the Cardiff look was my intention. Actually, I altered the action slightly to increase the contrast, but that had no effect on any borders that appear due to the action process itself.
    Thanks very much for your compliments/comments....appreciated!!:smile:
     
  12. No 2 is my favorite. Great job on all of them.
