Playing With Pictures

During my time away from blogging, among the things I did was take an Alaskan cruise out of Seattle. I was going back through some of the pictures I took, and found one of a wildflower, probably a Shasta daisy. I have a thing about taking pictures of wildflowers, especially when they show up where flowers shouldn’t by rights be. (This one, however, was right where it should be). But in playing with the picture in Paint Shop, I discovered I liked the water-color treatment better than the actual picture:

    Though I’ve paid thousands of dollars for equipment to take razor sharp pictures, I often end up using “painterly effects” in Photoshop to make them look more like my original perception of the flowers or birds.
