About the Image(s)

Irises with Music and several blurry backgrounds.
I realise I should probably have put in a Christmas image but instead I will wish you all a happy and safe Christmas!

Great work. I love the way the canvass texture works with the music score.   Posted: 12/25/2019 11:13:42

A beautiful image, whether Christmas or not. The music background makes the iris so lyrical. Both background and primary images are so well done. The use of textures on the music score really works well. The way you've scrambled the music is also fascinating. They way your've run the music only slightly onto the iris is also interesting, giving a concept of the iris and music intertwining.
Very nicely done.
Phil, Have a wonderful New Year!   Posted: 12/28/2019 13:46:38

Phillipa, This is a truly lovely image which I like very much. The irises are so delicate, beautifully recorded and arranged on the diagonal to enhance the overall compositional strength. The yellows and the near-blues complement themselves so well. The softness of the musical score in the background and the overlaid texture adds a wonderful romance to the composite and the way you have blended the background in respect to the irises is masterly. Congratulations and very well done! I wish you a Very Happy New Year and all you would wish yourself in 2020.   Posted: 12/29/2019 04:14:46
