Flower Power

I recall from a very early age that when I went to visit my grandmother I would be able to see her beautiful plants in the window sill.  Somewhere along the way I decided to follow suit and just love them.

What better way to dive into graphic design by using your own images!  This particular technique is available in Photoshop CS5.  I  am using a photo of my violet and used the Quick Mask to grab just the plant.  The balance is a combination of a Mask and Gradient Map.  I loved all the color choices I had available, but finally settled on this beautiful combination.
