[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of my favourite flowers - Kala.
I couldn't resist taking the picture, while visiting friends of mine. They had wedding anniversary and this charming bouquet was put quite aside, away from the others.
They have put it in a dark angle and I had to use the flash. The result was a bit unsatisfying, as the picture got a bit overexposed. So I decided to run it again through a filter, this time "Soft Plastic". What looked amazing to me was that behind the flowers appeared a colourful halo - I guess because of some light reflections or who knows...:-)
The picture became a bit heavy, but however I am offering it to you and leave it to your comments...
As a Workshop you can see the original version and compare it with this one.

pp: cropped, resized, run through "Soft Plastic" filter.

I made a plastic wrap image just now as well thats strange I like your better than mine. I just posted it gotta love PS. I like what you have done with this image, well done!.

It sure is another interesting experiment, Maria. And the filter found quite an amount of texture in your original shot, the result is not bad at all! A bit like a wax coating, very surreal. Well done.

Interesting enough to show it to us. Very nice Maria. You are really getting into those transformations. Nice. Happy easter to you.

Amazing what PS can do to a photo. Interesting idea and with a pleasing result.

A successful experiment! I love the effect you achieved with the filter. Very artistic, nice composition and framing. Well done.

WOW! I really like this alot. I think it turned out just fine. A fantastic portrayal of the arum lilly. Very well done!

Unique photo this one! The effect you gave is merveilleux!

Well done

Maria, I think you salvaged the photo quite nicely, I like the use of the plastic filter, it gives it a "melted plastic" look, the green stems look as though they have run downwards.
Very interesting experiment.

Interesting as result. I like very much the produced effect. I looked at the original and I find it very well also. Finally, the experiences(experiments) make a success of you.

Intéressant comme résultat. J'aime beaucoup l'effet produit. J'ai regardé l'original et je le trouve très bien aussi. Finalement, les expériences vous réussissent.
