Recently I found out about a plugin called Fractalius and thought today would be a good day to try it on some photos. Fractalius is the plugin that is used to create the cool “light effects” you see on some photos around the internet.
For the “After” photo, I created a mask and brushed out some of the lights so that it looked like the flower was generating some energy streams as it touched the water.
