The Promise of Spring
Let the gardening begin. This is a collage of a number of flowers, mostly from home, but a few from travels. I've used an effect in Photoshop called posterization to make them more distinct when viewed from a distance. The distortion can help when your image is a little blurry, but making it look like you intended it that way. :) Click on the top flower to get a magnified view of posterization. Posterization reduces the number of color tones to "simplify" the image. Too much of it, like most things, goes beyond being a good thing (unless you want to mimic Andy Warhol).
