Inside the Nasturtium

The challenge this week for Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday is to use the texture Aurora.  I’ve been finding that textures seem to work best with unsaturated, soft colors but this week my nasturtiums were begging to be photographed.  This photo uses two of Kim Klassen’s texture, the first texture used was Kim Klassen’s Canvasback, then a layer of Aurora.

After looking into the flower I did a little experimenting to make the center look a little more inviting to a bee and added a layer of Nik software’s Midnight.

With the rain still coming down outside, I thought I would try CS5’s Channel Mixer Black & White Infrared.
