It All Depends On What You Want: Pink Lotus

Some messing around with pink lotus photos in photo apps.

Original photo of a spectacular lotus flower on the Mekong River in Vietnam. The image is quite sharp.

I much prefer the brushier look.Mekong Lotus in PsykopaintMore of Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week Challenge: It All Depends On What You Want.
