Jazzy Succulents

This photo was really fun to work with.  You can see the original from the previous post.  It was so terrible I almost deleted it.  Then I decided to see what all I could do with it.  Here's the latest incarnation using Pixel Dust Photo Art's "dappled dawn" on color burn and "silent memory" also on color burn, and then poster edges.  Now I can really see the insect on the flower.  Can't tell if it's a bee or?
I'm using this for my Photo Friday Art entry.

Thanks, Bonnie, for hosting this fun weekly event and for your artistic textures.

It never ceases to amaze me what a texture can do for an average photograph. This treatment really makes it look abstract and gives it a feel of movement.

Thanks so much for joining in at Photo Art Friday Marilyn!

Excellent processing. I must admit that the original is quite poor. The results are truly amazing. Something that is going to trash you get a piece of art. Congratulations.

Wow! You've got what started out as a humdrum photo positively buzzing with life, light, colour and energy now. I find I'm more tempted to push the boundaries with photos that I initially, like you, feel should be deleted. I'm glad you kept it, and kept on. I like what you did with the Kim Klassen/Shadowhouse Creations textures as well.

Very cool and it does show the insect on the flower much more than the original. I do like the results you did for Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday as well. Great texture work.

This is wonderful Marilyn!
It almost looks like a painting.
The colors are wonderful.

Love the vibrancy and how it makes the insect stand out more - I increasingly use texture on mediocre photos rather than great ones
