Buttercup Bud

Camera App: 645pro
Extras: Ollo Clip 3in1 Lens System, Macro Lens

Additional Apps used for post processing:

PhotoForge2 - for a High Pass filter version
Blender - to re-sharpen the photo a bit by blending the High Pass version with the original photo in Overlay mode
ArtistaSketch - for a clean pencil sketch version
Blender - to blend the pencil version with the previous version to enhance sharpness, contrast and colors
MokuHD - to see what result Moku will give me...
AristaOil - to see that my picture will look like in oil...
Blender - to see what the result will be when blending the Moku version with the Oil version - and I liked the outcome a lot!
Blender and Blender again - to blend that version with the Sketch version again, then with the Oil version again, then with the original photo again to enhance details...
Camera+ - for the beautiful vintage paper frame
Pixlromatic - for the Perga frame. I love the Camera+ frame a lot but I wanted to make it look a bit different on  this picture.
A+Signature - for the copyright watermark handwritten signature as well as the markings on the composition of the steps I took to make this picture.

Sometimes it pays to put your work aside and let it sleep for a while if you aren't completely satisfied with it. In this case I was playing around with some apps for a while but I wasn't satisfied with the outcome of my picture so I dropped it, but I didn't delete the files. That was about two weeks ago. Now I had a different idea. I created an Artista Moku version as well as an Artista Oil version and I liked the outcome a lot. Then I was blending both versions in Blender and I was blown away by the beautiful result I got. Playing around with Blender a bit more I finally created a picture that I really loved. What about you? Do you like it?

The composition above show you some of the steps I took to create this picture. If you got questions about techniques used please feel free to leave your comment.
