ART plants - Alcea ( Hollyhocks )

in creativecoin •  2 months ago 

I have a series of photos taken of the Alcea plant in Foros area in Burgas, Bulgaria.

I wanted to see the different colors of the plant as they would look with different filters from the Deep Dream Generator.

This is the result!
