Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Photoshop

I have spent a couple of hours this morning playing in Photoshop, and this is my best effort:
A Poison Green Fern Frond.

I would not have been able to even begin without WOLL's instructions.
I'm thinkin' maybe a trip to the other side of the world, for personal instruction, is in order.

Well done...:-))

It looks poisonous all right, more for the resemblance to a centipede minus the bright orange/red colouration.

You did a great job! We have those type of ferns growing all over the place here. Got a couple shots myself this week...

I love it-looks like it needs to be in a frame hanging on wall to me.

I did not know that ferns could be poisonous. What you did looks like incandescent, with a clear focus on the foreground, blurry in the background. Woll, mentioned that earlier that he is giving tutorials.
Hi June, you are so funny! She is even away for 2 months for a vacation in the Phils, and I have to be on my own. It was a struggle and I have spent way more hours with PS2, an older version.

Thanks to all of you! I'm really not too impressed with it, m'sel'. Others' are far more interesting. But it got my feet wet with P'shop, so that's a good start.

Oh no no no, Ebie! The fern isn't poison; the green is! :-)

Your fern came out just wonderfully - I love the background.

Wanda said...

You actually made it glow like a neon sign!

We could go together for those personal tutorials, June! I, too, felt a little humbled by the efforts of some of the others, but this one looks most interesting.
