Year three - cornflower

Another one from my little wildflower pot.
I tried out a sketch action in Elements 11 just to see what it did. I rather like the effect.

Naughty me pressed the "buy" button on a Canon 5D mark iii bundle! I was going to just get the body as I already have the lenses I want - but for another £100 I got loads of accessories so it was too good to not get the whole package.
I know I already have the Canon 6D but I get torn between telescopic or macro when I go to nature reserves and my little Canon 1100D isn't really sharp enough for the lenses. That's my excuse anyway and I shall stick to it!
Hopefully the package will arrive in about two weeks!

Three good things today:
1. Got sent a new photo of MacKenzie - he is just gorgeous!!! can't wait to get him on Saturday.
2. Sorted out all my processing things that I have downloaded. Now have files for brushes, actions, psd files, textures etc.
3. A nice glass of merlot ..... it's still weekend! :)
It looks like a painting of course and the cornflower has such interesting petal shapes to make it interesting. Now MacKenzie sounds intriguing - a new pet, baby, bird?
