The original shot comes from my archives, but today I applied an extreme zoom blur to achieve this explosion of varied greens from the center of the frame

The original shot....taken in late May...is of an unusual wildflower and could just about meet the challenge on its own.

Nicely done. The first shot looks like a fan created from green silk. Nice job. Now, I've got to see if PSP has a function like that although I don't use the artistic function very much.

Cal, it was done in PSP. The tool is in the Adjust Menu...Blur...Radial Blur...then Zoom and I think I used a strength of about 55.

Paul,

Exactly what I was looking for. The original shot stands by itself showing quite and interesting plant. Looks a lot like an endemic fern we call "moa" or chicken.

The secondary treatment turns out much better than I anticipated because of the tinting of brown.

Great job!
