A straightforward shot of a green protea in our garden made me wonder about what could be done with it ... and here's the result!

PP involved some sharpening and saturation boosting, and then I inverted the image with PS. This particular version was not run through Neat Image, and some of the colour spots on the petals appear as noise here. The version that did go through NI is much smoother and would probably please some people more, but I like the slightly harsher lines of this one.

Very beautiful macro shot.
Very well post-processed.
And yes, I agree with you. The graininess works just fine.
Thank you Ray for sharing your photos with us.

Very good PP-work, Ray, it makes the photo almost like a drawing. I especially like how the form of the leaves are accentuated by the dark lines. Also very good colour tones.
Well done.

wow! superb shot. i have never seen anything like that before... great macro shot and nice colors

Absolutely fantastic shot Ray, the leaves remind me of butterfly wings, this was such an ingenious thought. Just beautiful. Extremely well done.
