About the Image(s)


I made the image at my local grocery store. Kroger
Shot with my iPhone 13 Pro. Before going into the store, I noticed a large display of Chrysanthemums for sale. I just went over, and snap a few shots with my phone. I edited this shot in Photoshop 2022, and just added the Oil Painting filter.

I love the colors in this. I am a huge fan of textures, but I think the oil paint effect flattens the image out too much. It almost looks like a quilt. I would keep the oil paint texture, but maybe pull back on it a little so some of the natural petal shapes come through.   Posted: 11/09/2021 08:46:35

Beautiful, rich colors. I think the texture is quite appealing and makes this a fine art piece. It would make a great puzzle. I don't have any suggestions for improvement. Nice job!   Posted: 11/09/2021 09:09:31

Great application action on exactly the right picture. I want to see the original except that might ruin the effect you captured here. I needed to zoom in to understand what is happening or if this was painted, etc. Also I like the composition but not sure why. It has a few S patterns, shows depth, multiple angles of the flowers leading from a center point. It leaves me with a good feeling each time I look which means a great picture.   Posted: 11/16/2021 23:10:34

As mention already, great colors, a good mix. That triangle of purple helps hold the viewer to the center, and may somewhat be responsible for that appeal that Andrew mentions. I do agree that the painterly effect may be little to strong; maybe brushing some out from the middle of each major bloom would add some depth.   Posted: 11/19/2021 13:48:07

Like the others have said, I like both your composition and the colours. The oil painting filter makes it look like an intricate needlework. Well done!   Posted: 11/23/2021 16:24:25
