Click on photo to enlarge!
I had a little phun with my cocktail umbrellas in Elements 5.
A 10% radial blur got these umbrellas twirling!

Very pretty! I've used that tool before; very fun!

That is great Phun. If you hadn't said they were cocktail umbrellas I would have imagined a colorful Asian dancing group in their beautiful kimonos and spinning these umbrellas. I can see it in my head. Thanks.

That's really cool but I'm getting dizzy. :) I need to start playing around more with photoshop.

EG Wow said...

I like the effect. Hmmm. I wonder if I have any photos this might work on. :)

The colour seems energised in this swirl! Beautiful!

I've never tried that, it's an interesting effect.

It's interesting to see the movement in this shot. The blue helps to define the other colors.

Happy Blue Monday, Carolyn.

A gorgeous shot. I don't have photoshop and I think I'm glad, because I'd spend too much time playing with it. What fun!

How did you get so many umbrellas twirl like that? This is very creative.

Very creative ! I was wondering how you managed to twirl all those umbrellas until I read about photoshop !
