MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

Gorgeous ! Such a smart choice of the white background for this delicious flower . [ if you do not mind - I would liquify that little white piece in left upper corner .... just my opinion :)) ]

24 Oct 2009 1:36pm

@MARIANA: Hummmm...I've got to figure out how to "liquify." Google, here I come. I NEVER mind your feedback and instruction, Mariana. Thanks so much !

MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

are you using PS ? If so, there is an option under Function - Liquify . It is cool . You can push the texture where you want :)) If not, Clone Stamp Tool is good too ! I just thought that shot would be more cool without that little white piece in a corner !

Wow - this looks like a top fashion shoot and the flower is the model! :-) Very professional shot, Dulcie.

Stephane Themeze from Maryland, United States

Its's getting more and more studied and more graphic! The light treatment gives way to details and color rendition so sweet to the eye. Like the diagonal composition choice here!

The two little dots of light in the corner were leaking your graphical shapes. This solution, or simply cloning out the dots.

25 Oct 2009 5:40am

@ordinaryimages: Okay, I confess...cloning will have to be the next thing I learn !!! ;-) Thanks, Jerry.

Having visited your blog for over a year, when I see an image like this it really shows me how much you have grown as an artist/photographer. This is a wonderful presentation, and 99% of people would never consider it. Kudos to you!
