Barcelona Psychedelic Garden

Jazzy Yellow Flower in Barcelona Psychedelic Garden
© All Rights Reserved

This jazzy yellow flower deserved some tweaking in Photoshop so why not give it a psychedelic mood to make it more artistic. As usual I need help to know the name of this specimen but the most important thing is its intrinsic beauty. I must confess that my fascination for photography is growing rapidly and every picture is taking me more and more time but I enjoy the process of creation like a child with a new box of color pencils and a white wall. Of course some people would have preferred the flower as such but then it would be just a static report of reality.
Recommended: An essay called Just say 'Yes' by Alain Briot, the famous landscape photographer whose tutorials I recommended here before. The author analyzes typical questions photographers have to hear often, such as “Do you manipulate your photographs?” or “Do you change the colors?” "Is this real?". For French readers I recommend his excellent site about high res photography Gallerie-Photo.

Latest News: Last Tuesday night, famous lizard fountain by Antoni Gaudi at the entrance of Parc Güell was destroyed by three vandals according to reports published today in El Periódico de Catalunya.

  10. Why don't vandals ever destroy or damage ugly modern things or useless things, rather than historical or beautiful things? I don't suppose it's hopeful, but I still wish they catch the culprits.

  11. I will visit your blog right away Dsole.
    Hi Meg I was shocked this morning when I read the news. I thought, why do you worry so much if it is just stone, but then again I felt sad, really sad as if I had lost something personal. But don't worry they caught this vandal, the one who hit it with an iron bar. Guess what? He had done similar things before. Do you know how long can he be in prison? From 3 months to a max of 3 years. 3 years? They should lock him there forever and throw away the key! Thanks for your words Meg.

  12. Beautiful work, Carlos! The flower might be a marguerite...not completely sure.

    I am very upset about that vandalism - is it salvageable?

  13. I wouldn't know how to tweak a photo if I tried, but I love this effect--most trippy! I say why not tweak if you come up with gorgeous creations!
