Trippin Poppy

Played around in LAB mode, the background was brown and the top of the stem was the darkest part.

Nice outcome, too.

The petals are floating above the stem. Magic.

Some ET is looking for contact with its hairy connector thing, while the ship from planet Poppy hovers. Beam me up Scotty!

Nice outcome in the labs.

Clever stuff Nig, the top of the stem is particularly effective as it looks like a light

I was going to ask you how you achieved this lighting effect Nig
Nigel Clack: After you have selected LAB in the image mode, I created a curves layer, then I pretty much reversed the lightness curve, so darks become light and lighter bits become dark. A few other tweaks ensued.
Reminds me of the Homer Simpson glow. Very nice though.
An interesting study. I could see an image like this in a Sunday supplement.
I like the composition alot

This has to be one of the most creative renderings of the simple poppy that I've ever seen. Terrific!
Nice bit of playing around, Nigel!
