Question   Wow! how'd you do that?
I really like your work Lydia. What software did you use to do your graphics pieces?

  Answer Hi, Dennis,

Thank you for for visiting my gallery:) I use Photoshop. If you have more questions, I would be happy to respond!

  Answer Lydia,
What do you do in Photoshop to create an image like "Classical"? Just what do you do in general...

Your photos and images are great!

  Answer Dennis,
On "Classical" I began with a picture of a bouquet of flowers. Then I used an add on filter by Flaming Pear Software. The add on filter I used was Flexify 2. I also changed some of the colors by going to "IMAGE->ADJUSTMENTS-> REPLACE COLOR. The colors in classical are not the same as the colors of the bouquet I shot. Flexify 2 has inspired several of my works, "Beachy" being my very favorite! I also use some Nik filters and Topaz labs filters. There are also artistic filters that come with PS. And also choosing unique blending modes creates some cool stuff.

It is a real blast to work on these kind of things, and very satisfying when I finally get one the way I want it!

They have some great Photoshop classes here. I have taken all of them offered by jim Zuckerman. If you are really interested, you might considering taking one or more of those!

  Answer Thanks again Lydia for answering my question. It's amazing what Photoshop filters can do in the right hands.

I'm new to Better Photo and I'm taking a course with Jim Zuckerman on Developing Your Creative Artistic Vision. So far so good

Thanks again!

  Answer I appreciate your critiques Lydia. I used a NIK filter Tonal Contrast filter on the wedge shaped building. It brought out the color and detail.
