I added several filters to heighten the dreamy quality of the forget-me-nots in the above photograph and then layered on a few painted textures as well. I also played around with the tones. Photoshop gives you endless possibilities for different looks to your images...I find it thoroughly addictive!
But not everybody likes this look. Do you like your nature natural? If so, you might prefer the image below...although I still played around with the forget-me-nots in this shot to enhance the softness of the flowers, it's much closer to the original.

So which photograph do you prefer, au naturel or painterly?
