Prickly Paw Paw ...

Prickly Paw Paw ...
For this week's Sunday Challenge, for which we were asked to create an orb.

Been a while since I did any so I was a bit rusty with the technique and must admit that some of the shots I took last week, which I thought would work really didn't do as well as I'd hoped.

Still, I liked this one which is based on a photo I took at Kiplin Hall, North Yorkshire, of an allium that had gone to seed.

The orb itself was create using the recognised technique of altering the polar co-ordinates while the back ground is the original image mirrored several times and then cropped.

When I get time, most likely tomorrow, I'll add the original image into the Notes along with a few others that I crafted for this particular challenge, but which lost out in the end to the allium.

Luis Soares, Isabelle Barruhet, Bill Robinson / kinderbill, Lebojo and 31 other people have particularly liked this photo

A bit beyond me but impressive work just the same (Off to find these Polar regions now!!!)

To be fair if Maurice you have the software it's fairly easy to get started with orbs. Then once you get a feel for what works and what doesn't you can look to go that bit further, but initially it's a 4-click process from start to finish! :)

My alliums are mostly finished now, Paul, but this could be A,christphii. I love the background too, but I don't know how to do this - yet!

autofantasia club has replied to Amelia Heath club
Yes, our have gone over too Amelia. This one was in the gardens at Kiplin Hall, which is only a few miles from where we live.

As for how to get the background effect, let me know which software you're using and I'll see if I can offer any advice! :)

As I've said to Maurice above Andy if you have the software it's fairly easy to get started with orbs. Then once you get a feel for what works and what doesn't you can look to go that bit further, but initially it's a 4-click process from start to finish.

Photoshop, PaintShop Pro and GIMP are just 3 of the packages you can use! :)
