Purple Iris Revisited

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 19 August 2009 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Here is a different texture used on the previously posted Iris image. There is a little different look, more brightness, and color variation with this image.

This texture is by: Pareeerica

Again, thanks to Anita for the inspiration!

I like that the blossom is not overlaid so much by the texture as in previous image, that makes it more clean. I don't like the blueish part much though. It looks like 2 textures (blue and purple) have been merged in a half of the image and it doesn't work for me well. Maybe if the gradient would be more smooth it would look better to me. But you only used a texture, I know.

I like this better, wider colour contrast and excellent texture. It gives the iris a nostalgic and substantional vibrabcy, just wow.

Yes, it has a better lighting to underline the texture in the petals and the whole shape of the flowers! And.....it is as beautiful!!!!
