For the second week of the one for Challenge organised by Robyn from Captivate Me. I was flicking through Flickr looking for inspiration on editing the picture. I really am not a fan of cropping this in the square format like a lot of those pictures. I did see one that had an X-ray styled effect, and thought I will give it ago.
It was quite easy to create the effect in Photoshop. I used Select – Colour Range and the quick selection tool to select the flower and used a mask to separate it from the picture. I added a white layer underneath and merged the layers down. I then inverted the image and adjusted the hue of the image with Hue and Saturation to make sure I had the right colour tone. I added a defuse glow from the distort filter and then added some contrast.
A very different image to last week. Let me know in the comments what you think about this transformation.
