About the Image(s)

Wishing you all a very healthy, happy New Year! This dandelion was taken in 4-2019, here in my yard, with my phone camera. Snapseed program was used to make the the edit. Looks>pop; Tools>glamour glow, vignette. Transferred to APS-CS6 on computer to resize and save for the web. Look closely and you can see a bug in there! So, this still goes with my "Living Yard Art" series!

A great close-up shot! placed a vivid yellow flower in the center of the frame get my attention immediately. the blurry background is very complimentary I think. Even though the petals are not perfectly sharp, the image has a soft natural feel as a whole picture. Well done!   Posted: 01/19/2020 00:52:55

A great flower shot with great color and lighting. As Abe points out the lack of sharpness does not detract. I am not a great fan of white vignettes and wonder if a dark vignette would help in bring out more of the detail in the flower. If you would not have mentioned the bug I would not have seen it.   Posted: 01/20/2020 19:58:21

I like Eric's idea for a darker vignette. I think the white confuses my eye as to where I should be looking. I do like the flower, especially that the yellows are not overexposed even through there are sharp shadows from the petals.   Posted: 01/20/2020 21:42:36

I like it! I like the colors going from yellow to green to blue. And I'll be the odd one out, I like the white vignette. It gives it a soft feeling. I know white vignettes are "so 1990's or whatever", but I don't care.   Posted: 01/23/2020 09:15:22
