After a busy day of taking photos and running errands, I sat down and produced this montage, using manipulative tools in Photoshop. How do you like it? Would love any feedback.

My daughter and I refer to these beans as the Magic Beans, because of their magical qualities. The Hyacinth Bean Vine, Ruby Moon, twists its way up any support system and looks especially interesting twisted around my copper sculptures. This photo was taken after a two day rain, which we desperately needed, with the water drops still clinging to the vine. The bean grows well in sunny locations and has flowered much of the summer. I usually save the bean seeds to replant another year.

Much of my artwork involves some manipulation in Photoship to extract parts of flowers and then to produce montages. There are so many functions in Photoshop that I have not begun to explore, but started playing with some of the artistic filters the other day. I chose one of my lotus pictures and then applied some different filters. I like the result and hope others do too. This is yet another approach to digital photography. Would love any comments and feedback.
