Homage to Georgia O'Keeffe

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 2 January 2010 in Plant & Nature.

Georgia O'Keeffe, one of my favorite artists, inspired me to use a texture by rubyblossom from Textures for Layers. I used Topaz Adjust Simplify filter two different times in different ways to get my original image to look the way I wanted.
Here is a link to the original photo.


I have been INTERVIEWED three times by photo-buddies:

- Orange Dahlia
- Pumpkin Light

I like it! And it's a most fitting tribute; but then a lot of your photos are.

The processing is amazing, doesn't look like a picture. I would love to see the original. Colors just pop, a great homage to Georgia

Before I read your title - I thought how similar this is to Georgia O'Keefe's painting style.
Well done!!!

You've done a masterful job of transforming this into its present state - a gorgeous image! Your technique works so very well... I trust you'll pursue this more in the future. This would look great printed and hung on your wall.

@don: Thanks, Don. I believe I will have it printed to hang on my wall.

Barbara Kile from Ft. Worth, United States

Superbly composed with just the right space on your frame edges - the color is eye-popping wonderful and overall a great image!

@Barbara Kile: Thanks, Barbara! I'm glad you like it, even if it is centered!

Barbara Kile from Ft. Worth, United States

With the irregular shape, and the stem off center - it's cool.
