About the Image(s)

1. Shot Lily (technical name: Lilium Bought*in*storum) in natural light with a white background.

2. Used portion of 2Lil Owls Texture placed over image.

3. On a Layer Mask, working from front to back, started brushing in opacity, decreasing it from 100% to 15% with the exception of the center of lily which was at 100%.

4. Added an additional 5% opacity over entire image at the end.

5. Last thing was to use the High Pass filter in Overlay blending mode.

I really like your composition, masterful brushwork, detail, and choice of background and color. I think Hallmark would like it too.   Posted: 10/05/2020 07:47:06

The Lil Owls background really complements your Lilium Bought*in*storum! A very tasteful presentation.   Posted: 10/09/2020 16:47:48

Nice subject matter. My only comment is that it is too close to the right edge of the frame...I feel that it needs a bit more space on the right...but don't put it dead center..I do like the split frame effect...   Posted: 10/17/2020 14:50:21

Nicely done and I would agree with Shirley about a little more space on the right side.   Posted: 10/22/2020 17:47:34

Lovely. My type of image. Im not keen on the inner frame "missing" from the left hand side. Texture works well but give it a tad more space on the right   Posted: 10/23/2020 09:54:46
