Phun Phriday, Today's Flowers, Mellow Yellow, Ruby Tuesday & Color Carnival / ZOOM!

ZOOM!
I had some PHUN playing with Photoshop again.
This is a 25% zoom using Photoshop Elements 5.
I would really like to accomplish this in camera.
Eventually I'll see what I can do.

A stunning effect Carolyn. You are right, when enlarged it does have a dizzing effect!

Carol said...

Very pretty....nice effect and i like the colors.

Tricia said...

I don't have Photoshop, so I'll have to somehow figure out how to do it in Paint Shop Pro... but it's so cool & pretty!!! =)

Scott said...

Way to go Carolyn, Great subject for this. This is Phun, but doing it in the camera is even more Phun! Can't wait to see those too.

Spiderdama said...

Wish you a happy weekend!

Eeyore said...

Cool. I didn't know I could do this in Photoshop Elements. Now I'm off to figure out how.

Teresa said...

great photo

Rick said...

Nice effect Carolyn - and phun !

And lots of phun (and easy) to do in camera - slightly longer exposures work best - 1/2 sec + - although it can be done in less. Have phun experimenting with/without a tripod.

Randi said...

Fun and cool! But as Rick writes - it´s easy to do it in camera, but you have more control over Photoshop ... "smile" ... and you can also add a duplicate layer with a layer mask and blur some parts e.g. in the center. I look forward to your next experiment!

Carletta said...

Reminds me of looking through a kaleidoscope. :)
Lovely effect!
I appreciate reading the comments about how to do it in camera. Maybe I'll experiment too.

Carver said...

What a wonderful splash of color.

Martha Z said...

That is an interesting effect.

Marilyn said...

It would make a great screen saver picture! I can do the blurry effect without much effort, but it's unintentional! ♥♫

Laerte Pupo said...

SEEKERS OF REDS

The seekers of rubies and poppies and reds
Won’t spend a spare second asleep in their beds,
Afraid that they’ll miss a rubicund sight
Or something that’s scarlet, flaming at night.
