Golden Red - Floral
I took this photograph at WoJo's greenhouse this spring during a trip to get some vegetable plants for our garden. I did a crop of the photograph to get closer to these wonderful golden red flowers. I did not have to use the Tone Curve or upped saturation as this image was popping with color!
Opening in Paint.NET I applied my favorite painterly filter for the effect it gives the photograph. I used PhotoPaint and the Filter Forge to crop and add a watercolor frame.
Saving that file I opened it in Painter 8 to Apply Surface Texture> Image Luminance> for a brushstrokes look and feel. I reopened in PhotoPaint to add the black and white borders.
