I chose to work with an image of pink hedgehog cactus flowers that was taken at Desert Botanical Garden here in Phoenix. Here is the image processed as I normally would in Lightroom. For a while now, when processing my images I have been adding a “frame” to them to look more finished. The “frame” has been left off for a more true comparison.
This second image is after taking it into Photo Effects 8 and adding several filters. It certainly has a completely different feel to it than the above image. I like how the image turned out and am now wanting to process and/or reprocess many images to see what I can come up with.
