Monday Blues

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 12 December 2011 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

We don't see much blue and white in the floral world - so why not create it!
Simple blues and whites for this white daisy. I applied the same texture twice, once with multiply at 100%, followed by hard light at 22%, then added a white color layer to brighten and cool the image.

NIKON D300 1/8 second F/16.0 ISO 200 157 mm (35mm equiv.)

You know, you're right...I've never seen a white gerbera! You'll have to tell the horticulturists to breed a hybrid and show them this pic as a guide! This is simply stunning. Your playing around is producing some interesting results, barbara! 5stars. :OD
