Nice one Bill, how did you do that? A bunch of plants against a background that you managed to color-mask perhaps...?
Even easier - the original photo is below. I used the magic wand to select whole bunches of the background and some of the foreground, then deleted them. While the empty areas were selected, I added a red gradient.
Here's a little something I was playing with. It is one of those gadgets that is lighting. I used a Nikon N80 with a 28-80 zoom lens. I started at or near wide-angle and then slowly zoomed in during the exposure. The image is pretty cool, but I am still having to suffer with a very poor scanner. I'm open to suggestions about a scanner. I would prefer a film scanner over a flatbed.

28-135mm (which is not a good lens in my opinion)
