You’re Underneath My Skin

Decided to keep a vow (that I made to myself) to go even harder on the Dream Effect. Might have to do this effect with a person soon. Hmmmmm…

  1. It’s hard to believe that’s a real flower, the middle area (stamen? I should know this) is very intricate.

    That’s an amazing difference between the “dream effect” and the original. I don’t hate the dream effect.

  2. Suzanne,

    I’m glad of been able to reach you on a deep level. Continue this type of commentary and I might be able to get you your very own avatar!

  3. Angie,

    Hard to believe because you’ve never seen a zinnia before, or because of the effect? The dream effect was very trendy for a bit. Kind of like HDR, but it seems to have run its course. In terms of oversaturation.

    I don’t hate the dream effect is a ringing endorsement.

  4. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a zinnia with that marked of a color combination, and any of the craziness going on in the middle. I am guessing I’ve seen the more average-looking variety that sort of reminds me of some of the flowers in the Disney cartoon of Alice in Wonderland, like this:

    To clarify – I don’t hate the dream effect in this particular application. Overall, I find it sort of silly.
