rhapsody ....

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 21 September 2009 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

Macro shots of this flower, "Society Garlic," became an abstract dance
when I superimposed one shot over the other.
(Great technique for me when I can't choose just one image to post. ;-)

For the next five days, my comments on your blogs will be sporadic.
My husband will be in the hospital in San Francisco for knee surgery.
When I bring him home I will be playing Nurse Nightingale or Nurse Ratchet depending on how things go ;-)

I will view your blogs daily to help me keep my sanity!

Your critique of my photos is most appreciated. . . . .

This is so lovely and gentle, but ...sorry for this But .. I think this gentle tones would deserve much more some light , very light background, but not this black :)) I love black background and use it very often for flower pictures, but only when flower is shoted with great DOF and sharpness :)

@MARIANA: This is a great suggestion, Mariana. This never occurred to me. Thanks so much for your feedback. It will be fun to play around with a different background...if I have the skill to do it. ;-)

Hope that all goes well with your husband's knee surgery. In my experience, it's easier to be the patient.
