Default Manipulated Sunflowers

Patty (nhmom) posted her Sunflowers and I gave one as my summer entry. We both visited the same field but on different days and times of day and that can make a big difference in the shots. The field is remarkably beautiful and this is my second year photographing it.

I thought you might like to see three manipulations that I have made as Art Photos. I hope these bring a smile.


"The world as seen by the sunflower"


"Sunflower Shower"


"No black hole in this universe"

Some really fun results of your manipulations! Especially like the "raindrops!"

All of these, and especially the third, are out of this world. Sorry for the very lame attempt at a pun, but I love the images!

Thanks Jehan, sometimes my artsy side creeps in and I like to play around with my pictures and try different effects. I even do it while taking pictures at times.

Thanks Mole, I had a lot of fun doing these. From reactions I have had from people the raindrops seem to be the winner with my strange universe a close second.

When I first distorted the Sunflower field into a sphere I thought it was out of this world and that is exactly what led me to create my own universe from it.

Glad you liked it and the pun wasn't lame at all. I thought it was pretty punny.
