Here in northwest Iowa, we've had one of the warmest winters on record which has caused spring to come much earlier than normal. Last week I couldn't wait any longer for flowers to bloom, so I went to the store and purchased a nice multi-colored bouquet of mums. That was the best $10.00 I've spent in a long time, I should be able to shoot those flowers for a good week or so.
After capturing several images I was happy with, I decided they needed something done with them that would make them stand out from other mum images that I've taken in the past. The above smoke effect I used is from onOne software and is just one of hundreds effects from this software package.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find time to get out and smell the flowers.
