Shot this one at a Botanical garden and had some fun editing it

Nice shot. Lovely green color of the leaves and an interesting pattern. Wonder what it would look like without the blur. Did you do that in Photoshop?

Paul, Rex, Peter, and Torben,
Thank you for looking and commenting.
Torben- I used some plug in filters from Digital film tools to add the effects through CS3 Photoshop. More trying to learn the filter program than anything.
Here it is with out the center spot blur applied.

The filtered shot is kind of cool-sort of a software lensbaby. I wonder how a less intense application of the filter (to retain a little more of the patterns created by the fronds) would look?

Good analogy and great question Dave. I need to work with the program a bit and figure out how all of that works. There are a wide range of adjustments available.

I like the unblurred version a lot. Maybe with a little crop at the top of the image.

Nice Dave, I agree it is very much like a Lensbaby effect.

Paul and any others interested. Here is a less agressive use of the center spot blur filter

Thanks Dave and Torben. As I work with the tools in this plug in I can see it will be quite useful for some things.
