here is another snap of my inside Mini-daffodils... a few days ago I noticed this one breaking the pack and dropping down... the BG was my water color.. looked really good! Sun was out the bottle was blue.. would look nice! RIGHT? nope the BG came out very shiny and rough looking... Our OUTSIDE ones are just starting to break the soil!

SO pp work went like this..... used my magic wand to select the BG took some time.. but kept adding each tiny selection! used the BIG, Square, Black brush to color the BG... to make sure (I HOPE) I did not forget any sections I lightened the shot and saw a few missed or lighter sections.. took the black brush again and tried my best to fill in the sections!

TRIED AND TRIED to get a thin yellow frame about 1/2 inch from the edges.. NO luck.. if anyone knows how to do this in Elements or Photofilter I'd love the tip!
flipped right to left... size and guess what NO upload issues... so just like I was thinking yesterdays post was all my fault! ;)

Hello Tricia
wonderful presentation, excellent background, beautiful.....

Very nice Tricia! Making frames is super hard... but I would isolate the edges of the flower that you want to have OVER the frame, then come back in the add 5 point yellow line, then add 20 point black line, the past the flower OVER the top, back in place...that's how I do it!
Good deal here!

Great composition, outstanding colours against the background. fine work and well done. TFS regards h

There must be way of framing in layers?

Great composition, superb deep colours

Amitiés, Corinne

- It's just amazing capture!
- It's a great job in any way...
- It's well done, well presented...
Bravo, George

My favorite flower :) good pp work Tricia, it would have been even better without flash, flash highlights are distracting in any photo.. thanks


Hi Tricia,

Beautiful presentation . .
Striking yellow flowers on dark BG . .
You did great PP work my dear friend


Hello Tricia,
Nice POV and details.
My mini daffodils are still not bloomed yet. TFS

Wonderful capture.
And good work on the BG.
For the yellow frame, did you try to draw a line around?
Don't know elements, but it must have a drawing tool.

hi tricia!
wonderful composition and great view, i like it.
