Spring arrived on the wings of freezing temperatures, which
bit the Japanese Magnolias and turned them yellow overnight.
I was able to get a few shots earlier before their demise,
and fortunately I found some in my files from a couple
of years ago.
To help with my creative slump, I downloaded a couple of
Photoshop filters: Pixel Bender (free)
and Topaz Detail 3 (free for 30 days).
Today I played with them and Sarah Gardner's new actions
and older textures on this image from last year.

borrow to photograph:
Enjoy spring...hope it materializes soon!
Till next time...
