Texas Wildflowers – Painted Blanket

Painted Blanket

NIKON D300, Nikon 105 VR, Photoshop

As Texas Wildflower season is coming to a close soon I wanted to post a picture of my favorite flower – Painted Balnkets.  Here in Texas we sometimes have roadsides filled with these.  From a far they look nice, but up close they are beautiful!  I took a close up shot of this Painted Blanket and blacked out the backgournd in Photoshop.  Then I used a plug-in called Flood.  You can find it at Flaming Pear.  This plug-in is fun.  You can instantly  put anyone or anything in a lake!  I tried a mountain landscape shot I had and it came out great – with a new lake reflection added!  I’ll post it tomorrow. You can also download a trial of this software.  Give it a try if your inner artist will alow – enjoy!
