A beautiful peony, originally colored in pink.

HOW I RECOLOR MY PHOTOS

What I do is simple but I don't just change the hue because this distorts the shading and contrasts. The basic action is:
  1. I create a new layer and fill it with the color I'd like to have.
  2. I set the blending mode for this layer to hue.

That's it. Go and have a try!

Made with Canon EOS 30D, color editing in Photoshop CS3.

I am glad to see that you appreciate my work and my techniques. Though it is nothing more than "color and contrast adjustment" in the end it needs some time and experience to achieve the effects. Thank you very much! :blowkiss:

its not just that, its the beauty in the actual flower that is captured through the colours you use such as as red velvet for lust, creating a warm feeling from a cold blue effect, and the purple one is devine!! your work is of high standard and companies would be silly not to accept your work!! your very talented and its good to see that so many people appritiate it :) . I wish you all the best and am really looking forward to see some more work from you ;). Thankyou =D. ^^;
