Mandarin Orange Monday

LorikArt
 
The Crown Imperial or Kaiser's Crown is a member of the genus Fritillaria. It is native to the Middle-East. While the wild form is usually orange-red, various colors are found in cultivation, ranging from nearly a true scarlet through oranges to yellow.
I used PSE magic extractor on the flower and placed it on pdpa Dusy Rose Bokeh for a background.  Then I overlayed it with pdpa Light Rising and erased out the flower.  For the Framing I used KK Dream it over orange background and covered it with 49% Sun Shine overlay. 

For my second picture, once again, I used the Crown Imperial flower picture and PSE Distortion filters ... just for fun :)

  1. Oh I love how you processed this. I took notes so I can try it on a flower. I have PSE6 and wonder if I have that magic extractor wand....I am unsure how to use that.

  3. Beautiful results! The soft green agains the vivid orange is great - and i love all that detail you captured on the petals. Those lines resembling creased paper complete the picture! I haven't used those filters and will look them up. Thanks. And thank you for sharing it on Mandarin Orange Monday:)

  5. What a gorgeous photo. This is one flower that I have never had much luck growing. For some reason, they just never grew. Yours is just beautiful.
