That's my longest title.

Two varigate gerbera daisies as eyes, a ranunculus as a nose and the grin are two bells of St. Mary's. Well you know it's a bit odd. A perhaps that big smile looks like a face and I should have added something for a grin, or frown, but work with me here. OK? LOL!

Camera raw adjustments in PSElements 6.0.
Rotate 180. Layer adjustments for levels, brightness/contrast and hue/saturation. Adjust sharpness. 2/3 crops. Adjust color curves. New layer of levels resetting the black point. Spot edit a few specks on the black background. Resize. USM.

I predict a riot!
