Sweet peas, I love them! When I was coming home from a walk yesterday afternoon, I ran into a neighbour who was cutting back her sweet peas which grow on a fence by the footpath and asked if I could have some seeds as hers are particularly nice ones and have looked wonderful for the past month. Can’t wait to have a display like hers!
I gave this photo the soft effect, I find it suits flowers especially selectively focused ones like these. When we were putting together the Autumn pack, I made sure we included some soft easy to use textures especially for my flowers 🙂
To start with I improved the tones by using Nik Efex White Neutralizer
L’oxygene @ soft light 100% masked from the focus flowers
Aotea mist @ soft light 100% softly masked from the flowers
Aotoea mist @ soft light 100% masked as above
I find that doubling the texture layer often makes all the difference even if the blending mode and opacity is identical.
All textures are from the Autumn Painterly pack
