Default Just do it: Waterlily

This is an archival shot from 2006 but is hopefully exemplifying the concept Cal is asking for.

First the original:


and now the remake named the Soul of the Waterlily:

Let me guess how you did it--three steps, 1) create a rectangular selection, 2) invert the selection so the area outside the rectangle is selected, 3) apply the negative image filter. If you did it differently, I think everyone would like to know.

As has been said, spectacular work.
