Cereus cactus less stark take

this one is done in topaz b and w, Photoshop several layers with masking of the spent bloom and adjustment layers, one smart object. Did some edge exposure and added some secondary basic exposure and did some fiddling in lightroom

as well. This is a cropped version. Still not satisfied with workflow. Seems to be all over the place to achieve what I want then hard to remember/document. Becoming very used to using Topaz Studio. Kudos to Topaz for that app. Kind of looks “alien” and “organic”. I just got through watching the newest Alien movie again. (Got a free alien T shirt for no increased price, :rolling_eyes:


Nice … looks like something Alien…

Great image! Very striking - ominous, like a scene straight out of Alien 1. I like it very much.
