Snowy Sepia Rudbeckia

snowy rudbeckia in sepia
I love photographing rudbeckia (black-eyed susans); they are like sculptures in the winter snow. To achieve the see-through border, I added a 9px stroke to the Photoshop layer that had the sepia effect. Since the layer had an opacity lower than 100%, the border is also transparent. The default stroke effect is a bright red color; using the eye-dropper tool, I selected a color from within the photograph for the border.

You got a lot of snow too I see. Flowers can be beautiful even in the winter.

Nice effect!

kramer says

Quite a dazzling effect in a muted way. Winter weather photographs always intrigue me.

I like the way the Susans popped against the muted background. In any weather, they give off a happy vibe.

How lovely in sepia. Dandelion puffs would look good with this filtering.

I like the tones. The snow looks like sugar.

I like that description of the snow like sugar.

Ralph says

These are quite delicate! The feeling seems to be delicate: crystal stemware or an exquisite ceramic. What we see in sepia is artistry, indeed...

Carver says

They are so lovely with their snow caps on and I like the sepia effect created.

Sherrie says

Very pretty. One of my favorite flowers. Have a great day!
