Daisy Duo

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 21 September 2009 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

This is an encore appearance of my 'girl' daisy. Both daisies here have unique personalities in their own way. 2 textures used here: mine is a multiple exposure foliage image and the 2nd is one by Boccacino (http://www.flickr.com/photos/boccacino/) which was edited to provide what I needed for texture and color.

The daisy-girls might be beautiful.....but your processing makes them the stars of the show! Again..one of your wonderful works that fills me with emotion!

Tomas Turecek from Czech Republic

Stunning image, Barbara! Without a post processing and with common/natural background it would be probably great but ordinary shot. After the post processing it's AMAZING! I like the composition and curves in the stem, colours are warm and very appealing, sharpness and choice of DOF excellent. I applaud. This is a true piece of art!

@Tomas Turecek: Very kind, Tomas. Thank you!

Nance E Salkeld from Cary, United States

You have beautiful photos. I like the various techniques you use in many of them. Obviously you've been doing this for a while. You're very creative!

21 Sep 2009 7:50pm

@Nance E Salkeld: I appreciate that, Nance. There are no formulas here, so I just try some different looks until something 'clicks.' thanks for stopping by, and this 'analytical' type receives the comment about 'creative!' Maybe I'm getting there!

AG from London, United Kingdom

Easily one of the most beautiful flower shots I have ever seen. This is photographic CRAFTSMANSHIP! Most of us take pictures of flowers - all well and good. But this is extraordinary. Bravo!

@Bob Towery: Thanks, Bob!

Anita from West Nottingham, United States

You did a beautiful job here with these textures and the gorgeous image of the two flowers. I love the position of the two flowers in relation to each other. The textures complement the flowers perfectly. Lovelyt light and brightness.

25 Sep 2009 11:06am

@Anita: Thanks, photo buddy! I had tried another texture first, but it just didn't 'sing' for me. Then I tried another until it did! Each one has its own personality, right? :-)

Marie from FRESNES, Afghanistan
