253. Christmas Cactus

After seeing Mike’s gorgeous flower image, I decided to try his processing method.  I did my normal edits in PSE9, then applied the topaz simplify – colorful painting preset- then instead of playing w/ the opacity as Mike did, I used the multiply blend mode.  Finally I ran the high pass sharpening on it and made the frame!  Thanks for the processing idea Mike, see…..you inspired ME!  🙂

  1. We have them but they refuse to bloom in stiffling heat we have to wait until it’s really cold – Like about 70% farenheight, you know real Winter Weather.

  2. Those are really beutiful, especially when in full blooming 🙂 Great work with the picture.

  3. Imagine having that photo framed like that on teh wall, would be perfect! I missed doing photos of my cactus this year and it’s nice to see that you have the same one 🙂

  4. Really love the work you did on this Tammy. Truly so lovely!

  5. Beautifully done! Should be framed just this way! 🙂

  6. Beautiful! The processing really makes the image come alive.

  7. This is GORGEOUS!!!

  8. It is so beautiful, Tammy. You need to make this your Christmas card.

  9. I don’t have the Xmas cactus but my daughter does and I’m always amazed at how beautiful they are – hers is crazy with blooms this year.

    So too is your image Tammy, just beautiful!

  10. I just got a copy of P9 for my Christmas present… haven’t opened it yet but I am inspired to break into the package early to try something like this. Hope I can do have as well. This is so appropriate for the season!
