FCAS Membership Application

Okay, here goes my entry...

And as required, here is my attempt at describing how I got the shot.
The picture as it came off the CoolPix 995, resized to 640x480

Phtoshop CS screenshot with the layers used to come up with final shot

And my setup

The process in photoshop was
-duplicate layer
-select background
-cut out the victim tulip LOL
-paste onto new layer
-create new layer, gradient fill
-select flower layer again
-levels adjust
-select backgroud gradient layer
-select inner square
-stroke with 2 pixel border, inside, white
-select text tool, enter signature, select font, render
-apply frame drop shadow border action
-resize entire image
-unsharp mask (200, 2.6, 1)
-Click Edit, Save for Web...
-Save as JPG with max quality
-process pictures of setup

Upload all pictures to web server and apply!

I hope that's it. Let's see when Uncle Frank and the Committee will have time for my entry... I wait anxiety!
