Today's Flowers: More Daffodils

My last post was daffodils but I love these first blooms of spring so I'm still playing with my camera and my photo software. The above photo was taken late in the evening with just the soft light of my dining room chandlier. I really like the blue jar in contrast with the yellow bloom.
"On The Fringes"

A little macro work.

Although I strive to get my photos right in the camera as I'm taking them I have also really been enjoying working with adding textures to my photos. I like how the texture in this gave it a more old fashioned look.

I'm posting for Today's Flowers.

Beautiful shot Carletta, the macro of the edges is very well done. My favorite is the last photo, I like the softness of the entire shot.

On the Fringes is very reminiscent of O'Keefe to me...neat perspective!

I love the final edit. It looks like watercolor pastels!

You can never get tired of daffodils! Its a sure sign of spring arrived! I like the texture too. I use them as well and love the added depth and drama they add to photos!

These are wonderful. I'm going to go out on a limb here...that jar looks green to me. Excellent as usual :)

Beautiful shots. I love daffodils and jonquils. They are such a bright spot of hope after a dreary winter.

Just as a I said on your yesterday's post!!! I'm catching up as we were gone all last week. Thank you for the daffodills, which I miss -- we get no spring flowers here in sunny Florida. (As I may have said before a million times or so.)

Again I like the altered version best, but I love those 'fringe' shots best of all!
