About the Image(s)

How I did it: This is a composite that I experimented with. In PS CC Bridge I played with the sliders and did some cropping to get an acceptable image. Then in PS CC I experimented with a lot of the filters finally choosing Find Edges and Sumi-e together in one image. I’m disappointed in the all black area in the upper portion but couldn’t find a way to change it.

What do you think and how would you do the tulips?

I really like your experimentation Henry! This reminds me of a linoleum block print.
I wouldn't change a thing. If you were to add a graphic in the top right, the black is a perfect background.

Thanks Maryellen. There are just infinite ways in which one can work with flowers, both outside and inside during Minnesota winters.   Posted: 11/16/2020 16:25:54

Henry, You've done a great job with the composition, flower placement, colors and the handling of the foreground and background. I have nothing to add this month.   Posted: 11/16/2020 17:11:01
