Guess I’m on a roll today!  More photos taken in March.  This is the Cascalote Bush in blossom.

I ran this through Topaz deJpeg, then Topaz Adjust Detail. Back in Aperture, I adjusted the red hue.  Then I tried out the new Topaz Lens Effect again…  although the background was already a Bokeh, it wasn’t as smooth as I’d like it, so I used the “Bokeh – Selective” to mask the areas that I want to have the Bokeh affect.  I’ll admit it took me a few tries to get it right, but I learned a lot about the tool in the process.   Finally, I went off to PSE 9 to use layers to create the frame.

  1. I like the diagonal positioning of this great looking plant, also your explanations of how you achieved the results, looks good.

  2. Beautiful…love that color! Lens effects has a little bit of a learning curve, but once you master it you will love it!

  3. Beautiful!
