Awakening


Photo Information
I stripped some colour from the petals, and then tried to give the appearance of a flower that had burst open suddenly,obviously quite a bit of pp. Hope it worked.

I think this is great. You say obvious PP, but it must be the good kind of PP as its not what comes to mind upon viewing. Love the deep dark green with the contrast of the low key pink. The rain/dew drops are a great added bonus. Excellent lighitng gives the whole shoot depth and mood.

Its fantastic Maria, I never can get a good result when I photograph a Gerbera, this is super, it looks like it has pollon on the petals and added raindrops, good colur too. Cheers Trixie

Really like the use of the subdued colour.

(I don't mean any offence) but for personal tase, I'm undecided whether I like the PP blur/smudge though.

A fabulous shot, Maria. You've made this branch of photography your own!
Best wishes,

No offence taken, i think we all have differing opinions, thank you for your comment.
Kind regards Maria
