Thunderbird (5-10-10) is at least the sixth version (some kept, some deleted) I've made from its old original picture. Another of those endlessly intriguing flower centers I keep coming back to over the now almost four years I've been taking pix. By the way, I did not distort those shapes and curves. I just changed its colors, turned it 90 degrees to the right, and outlined the edges of the shapes (using several layers of filters, such as inverting, plastic wrap, re-inverting, and poster edges). The more I layer Photoshop filters the more fun I have diving into the possibilities. Maybe someday I'll come up for air and learn some of the other functions Photoshop offers.

I've posted the original for Thunderbird before, but here it is again for comparison's sake below, "Fractious." Technically "Fractious" is not the original. But I no longer even have the full picture I took, i.e. un-cropped and in the totally natural colors. I hadn't yet realized how one's vision for a photo can change as time passes, and in my case for sure, one's editing skills and available programs. --
