I was playing in Photoshop and love black and white so I thought I would add my wilting rose to my gallery. When you enlarge it the petals look transparent. Sharon

Great photo. I love photoshop

Thank you Pierre. I could not function very well without Photoshop. It makes life easier. Thanks for the comments, Sharon

Your technic is unique, Sharon! Best wishes from Hungary, Tom.

~~West Coast Sharon~… on March 2, 2009

Thank you Tom. I don't know what I am doing so I just do what I think I like and keep trying until something happens. I can always delete and start the photo over, which I do all the time. I also save a lot as I am working on a photo because half the time I can never reproduce it. So, not sure how unique the technique but thank you so much for commenting. You and everyone is giving me encouragement to try other things. Sharon

shaeurpb, this is a very interesting image which only looks a little like fractilization in photoshop. Whatever treatment it is you have created something quite beautiful. -Art

Thank you for your kind comments. I did like this rose, seems translucent when enlarged. I think you have some very beautiful photos also. I also like your name as I think science and art go together hand in hand. Sharon

Art Anderson on March 5, 2009

I agree very strongly with what you say about Art and Science, Sharon. It has permeated my life. If you want to learn more HERE is a ppt about it and THIS is my home page. Best regards. -Art

Boy oh Boy do I have some reading to do. Thanks for the links to your sites. I just browsed a little but I will have to go back for more. I have found myself drawn to Fractals for the last 15 to 20 years, nothing like a beautiful mathematical equation. I try and explain fractals to friends and they cannot understand the idea behind a Mandelbrot or Julia. I do art quilting and fractals make the best visual quilt. I am now thinking microbiology will also be beautiful art. Thanks again for the comments and for your passion. Sharon

Nice to meet you Sharon, I clicked on your star so that I can keep up with your new photos. I find there is a lot in them that I like, they compute passionately. ;> Best regards. -Art

This transparent rose is nicely created Sharon. It is even better in Black & White. Nice to play around in photo shop fractalius as there are endless creativity.

best wishes Manoo

Thank you Manoo. I have always loved black and white photos. One day I spent a whole day taking hundreds of photos in B&W. I will go through them and upload some. Thanks bunches, Sharon
