Week 29: Part of the Whole

I get tons of inspiration in the swimming pool looking at my plantings from a low perspective. On this day, the sun was backlighting a yellowed leaf on my Bird of Paradise plant. I love backlight, and had to capture it. I put a Paint Daubs filter on it in Photoshop, followed by Photo Stylizer and Polaroid Transfer in Nik’s Color Efex Pro 4. It was the latter that provided the thin torn edge surrounding the image. I cropped the leaf in the camera, as I always do, thus creating Part of the Whole.
