I was a bit stunned at how pretty this snapshot of wildflowers turned out. I hadn't noticed the array of colors until after the shot. I noticed ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' sherpet's tendency to fill the frame with texture and pattern, so I thought this was appropriate. She also appreciates sheer floral colorfulness.

I blended a layer of Topaz Color Jump on overlay at semi-opacity. Then bumped it a little brighter with curves. I cropped it not quite square, but at least less rectangular. She seems to like more squarish aspect ratios (and the right side was a bit drab anyway).

I doubt this will do well, but I hope that sherpet enjoys it.

Am wondering at what time of the day you caught this. The way the central bunch is dancing, the light, all is so full of life!

This is so pretty... those blues make this a fabulous scene instead of a bunch of mess.

I love the small sharp bits of color- pizzicato would be a good analogy.

This is lovely -- beautiful colors, light, and clarity. I think it might be a little stronger if it were cropped square.
