About the Image(s)

The False Sunflower is also known as Ox-eye and the flower produces fruit. It is a flower that attracts butterflies. In the background field are Wild Bergamot, which provide a nice colorful backdrop for the yellow False Sunflowers. Tech stuff: ISO 100, f/5.6, 1/60 sec., manual exposure, center weighted average metering, 200mm focal length. Standard processing of RAW image in LR, then into PS for cleanup and cropping. Then I put it into Topaz Studio for painting. Back into LR for gradient filters, and finally into PS for burning.

I love this painting. Darkening the upper section now gives a diagonal line from color to darkness that is wonderful. It really now allows the false sunflowers to attract your attention. My absolute favorite parts of this image are the purple and yellow flowers themselves - these now have a great "Orton" feel to them, and I particularly love each of their "halos." Great image.   Posted: 09/14/2021 16:04:29
