Burning Dandelion

Burning Dandelion

After post processing in Lightroom, I brought this into Corel PaintShop Pro X6 Ultimate and used two of the fractalius (plugin) presets – I liked the way the “Crayon Wide” made the grass look, but not so much the flower. I liked the way “Neon Light” made the flower look, but not the grass. I dropped the opacity on the two layers with the effects and created a mask on the neon light layer. After flattening the layers, I saved it as a TIFF then did a little lightening of the background in Lightroom.

Photo was taken at the King Gillette Ranch on February 1, 2014
