We are now in week 3 of the March One Four Challenge, hosted by Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me. I’m having a play with filters this week and have discovered another way of putting the spotlight on the butterfly and camouflaging those distracting little twigs.
Week 3 process: Spherized

- Tweaked the highlights and saturation to lift the colours in the wings and rosemary blossoms

- Applied a vignette to darken its surroundings
Here is the result:
Just as a reminder, here is the progression since the original:
