It’s been a while since we’ve had some floral prettiness with texture here on the blog! This was taken in our New Zealand spring a few months back. The flowers grow over the fence just down the hill from where I live and I couldn’t resist picking a sprig while passing, I’ve no idea what they are but they’re a beautiful subject, especially when paired with one of my little oriental styled teacups.
Processing as always was pretty quick, I used just one texture, but I used it twice at different blending modes, something that often works well depending on the photo.
Organza @ Overlay 74% masked from the flowers so as not to overwhelm them with texture.
At this stage it did look okay but to tweak the tone slightly I used a Flypaper Nik Preset, Sugar.
