Photo of the Month - Waterlily Swirl

Photo of the Month

This image was taken by Cindy Cone. It won a Blue Ribbon in the recent 2015 FCCC 1st Triannual Digital Competition - Class A Creative.

It was taken with a Canon Digital Rebel, with a Canon 18-135 mm lens set at a focal length of 135mm. The camera settings were 1/400 sec. at f/10 with ISO 200.

Cindy's comments follow: It's actually a photo I took about 10 years ago with an early Digital Rebel and first started experimenting with different filters for it in 2009. I can't tell you my exact process, but I mostly used Photoshop Distort/Twirl. I used a variety of layers and masked back parts of the image as I "retwirled". I also used a bit of Topaz Simplify.
