A beautiful threesome. I love their lines and delicate colors. Wonderful soft stucco texture in the background.

Just beautiful, Barbara. Lovely curves, great composition and wonderful light and colours. The texture matches it perfectly. The only thing I am not absolutely sure about is the texture overlaying the two upper blossoms. I think I would delete it from them a bit more. I LOVE it anyway ;)

@Tomas Turecek: Thanks, Tomas for the comments and I can blend the texture more on the upper flowers. Good idea! I usually blend at low opacity, changing the brush from black to white until complete. I'll spend more time on this area.

Ioanaz from Bucharest, Romania

Hmmmm...you call your photoblog "discoveries". I think not. I think it is "inventions", for the images seem to come more from your very creative soul rather than just being found. You do such wonderful things with your colors and textures. This is a fine example. BTW, I agree with the comment about the texture overlapping the flowers...

@Barbara: Thanks, Barbara! Well, creativity is a gift from the Creator! I just want to steward that gift. The execution always needs work, however. lol. I will go back to the master file and blend the texture off a bit more on the top flowers. I feel the same way, but was readying this image late last night and didn't spend enough time blending. It's a fine line between leaving a 'line of demarcation' and fine blending. :-)

Anita from West Nottingham, United States

Another beautiful composition and perfect framing. I like the different positions of the 3 flowers, and how the colors all work together.
