The 2nd Annual First Impressions Photo Contest was one of our most popular, and we received a number of outstanding photographs. Thanks to our sponsors Duggal Visual Solutions, Gitzo, LumiQuest, Manfrotto, PNY and Tamrac for making the contest a huge success. You can see all of the finalists on our website at www.digitalphotopro.com. Congratulations to all of the winners and finalists!

(Lily Splash) I enjoy creating in Photoshop as much as I love photography. I wanted to do something out of the box, something different and eye-catching with my flower portraits, so I started looking for tutorials online. I saw a technique in one tutorial that had a person turning into liquid, thought it was interesting and decided to see if it would work on a flower. “Lily Splash” was my first attempt at this particular technique, and I was so happy with the results that I’ve started a new series of flower portraits.

Nikon D300S, AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm ƒ/2.8G IF-ED, Interfit strobe with a small softbox, 13-inch Apple MacBook, Photoshop
