|Pixellated macadamia nut blossoms|
I fool around with photographic effects on my mediocre pictures trying to make silk purses out of sow's ears and occasionally it works. I tried a number of things to dramatize this photo - adding borders, trying a blur effect, altering the colors. Nothing worked very well but I think the pixellating, while making the
image unrecognizable as macadamia nut blossoms, created a pleasing combination of colors and shapes.
The camelia is also overlooked much of the year but today some lovely blossoms have appeared. The first photo is the original and on the next two I used Picnik.com to crop it it, make a 60's version with the sepia tones and a focal focus version.
Amazing that so much fabulous photo editing software is available free "in the cloud". And even more amazing that it's so simple and easy to use.
