Well I was spoilt for choice for inspiration in Sherpet's portfolio. After one failed idea I decided to have a play with something I haven't used before, negative inverts, not something I usually like but I did like the way it enhanced the outlines in some of sherpet's flower shots so I guess it's all about the way it's done. I took a photo of a delicate poppy, inverted it and then to put my own twist on it and make the colour combination a little more coherent I tweaked the original hue and saturation.

It was taken on an Ixus compact because my slr took a dunking :-((

Shez - Thank you for your lovely comments!
h2 - I don't think the processing reduced image quality, it was taken with a 7MP compact on the macro setting as my SLR is sadly out of action. The original image looks a bit like this (slightly different crop) //www.flickr.com/photos/17563528@N00/6078603717/
Crazy Diamond - It's a field of flowers. Just a beautiful clump of right flowers right by a traffic light junction on my way to work. It's almost like some member of the public just went and scattered a load of seeds as they only appeared this year.

After voting on the other photos I wish I'd added a border now, didn't think of that!

Fun background and cheerful colors. The noise is a bit too noticeable and detail in the poppy is a bit lacking.

colors and subject are sherpet's style, but the processing reduced image quality very much
