One of my favorite subjects, an art object known as an Orb, all dressed up for the New Year with polar co-ordinate filters and the luminosity blending mode. One of the things I learned from this experiment was that these effects could be applied to smart object layers. How many of you experiment with blending modes? How about smart objects?
