These lovely thistles are growing all along the roadsides. They have the richest colors! I photoshopped this one just a bit for fun. Posted by Hello

What did you do in Photoshop? Looks pretty natural to me...

Either way, although the colors are beautiful, it looks like a scary plant, LOL. Thorns and the such don't really play to well with me :-)

I just hit it with a watercolor filter that I backed down to about 40%. It softened the background a little because the thistle just blended into the background too much. The thorns are quite wicked - I brought some home to put in a vase and had to handle them with my leather yard gloves because they are sharp!
