Cactus ET the story

Here is the story of Cactus ET as it travelled around the group.
It is interesting to see fairly constant colours almost throughout and the different ways we found to distort the images.

From the original cactus photograph, I copied it, applied a gradient map and blended the 2 layers using difference mode. I replaced all the blue tones with green and cropped a square from the part of the image I felt worked best.

If anyone else would like to share how they made the transformations, just send it in a comment.

I can see the transition as the
cactus moved around the group. When it got to my turn I thought it was getting a bit in your face
and wanted to tone it down so I used Filter, Distort, Shear and repeat edge pixels. Looks nothing like a cactus now!
