right after reading the amazing tut by George55 at http://www.pxleyes.com/tutorial/photoshop/1965/How-To-Create-Beautiful-Birds-And-Flowers.html, I was tempted to put it into practice,...but it was too bad to me that the smudge tool on my comp. didnt work well so I tried to find another way, was that I used the motion blur to get the effect of feather-look,...and I was surprised by the result...it is perfectly messy ugly!!!!LOL....but now here it is,....you just name it....and I call it Birdie...

Inspiration of this image came from this quote:

"Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. You just have to live life to the fullest. Laugh as much as you can, spend all your money, tell someone what they mean to you. Tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain. Hold someones hand, comfort a friend, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late. Be a flirt, smile until your face hurts, don't be afraid to take chances or fall in love, and most of all live in the moment cause when you look back one day knowing you have no regrets, its going to be what makes you smile."

Thanks to F-L-O-W-E-R-S and mjranum-stock for the stock images.

This picture has a thought behind it.
_______________________
Techniques used:
Warping (puppet warp for the rose [cs5 only]), Gradient maps (brown-yellowish), a lot of colour adjustments. The shine from the window is made with a radial- and motion blur. The walls are set to soft light with a lowered opactiy, masked to they blend together, free transfomed to give it depth and make it look realistic.
But as always I cant remember all the things I've done when I'm finished with my work. (5 years and 1586 days ago)
