Photo Art Friday, week 5

This week I tried out Bonnie's tutorial over at Pixel Dust Photo Art.   I took a photo of our Cimicifuga plant during the last week of September.  It is a tall plant and also goes by the names - black cohosh, bugbane, snake root.  I like the creamy racemes this plant produces, quite striking.

The texture I used to create this photo art is available at Pixel Dust, and is called Scratches.

Here is the original photo before processing.

I continued using the same tutorial without the texture, using only filters, on another photo.

A interesting effect! 

Here's the original photo

The bush is called Viburnum, withrod or sometimes wild raisin.
