After completing just over 20% of my project I feel as though it is finally taking root.Shot for the December Opposites Challenge.Today's theme is ground.
Please view large for full effect of edit.
Sorry to anyone who commented. I didn't like my finished product, so I re-edited.

Going back to your discussion from a few days ago about getting an Ace membership, if you were to get one, you could log onto picnik's website, and re-edit and then post without losing any of your comments/favs.

@mej2011 Thanks for the info. I can't do the type of editing I want in Picnik. This shot involved cutting and pasting and copying and lots of blending. I did my best to make it look as if my bottle had rooted into the tree.

Oh. Sorry. I'm not good with the editing, so I am never sure exactly what people do in order to get their shots.

@mej2011 That is fine. I love picnik's huge collection of filters and effects. What I did with this one requires very precise selections that picnik doesn't have.It took forever to edit this and it took me a few years with this program to be able to do this. Thanks again for the info on the ACE. I will very likely be getting one after the holidays.

interesting edit - fun to do - you can do a lot of editing in GIMP - which is a freeware package - similar to and early version Photoshop

Ooh great textures! Works really well for the challenge too :)

@shanne Checked it out. I have a program called PictureIt. It does everything gimp does and more. Gimp is still only for jpgs. I need an editor for raws. I don't really need it, need it. It would be nice to not have such a huge file loss when I'm done. The program I have does most everything photoshop does but with jpgs not raws. so the file is very degraded afterward. But the visual effect is still good. just can't blow it up huge.

There's a plug in - UFRaw - that lets you edit RAW in GIMP - not that I've used it
