I love good photography, and I wish I could stumble upon the opportunities that some lucky photographers seem to do when their cameras are in their hands.

As adorable as these photos are, I am beginning to wonder about them.  Photoshopped - or not?

I am not sure of the answer, but they are creative - no one can doubt that.

I don't photoshop - and I don't shoot in raw and then spend hours editing.  Maybe I should, it seems to be what everyone does, but I like to take the best picture I can the first time, or the second time - maybe even the third time.

I love to shoot flowers, and I think I am getting pretty good at it.  I love the colours and the contrasts in nature - not matter how many shots you take, it's just about perfect each and every time, because nature is perfect each and every time!

A couple of days ago I was opening the blinds in my spare room which looks out to my neighbours back yard.  I could see bright deep orange on the other side of the hedge, but I couldn't see what it was, so I grabbed my camera and went for a walk.

Oh - the sight that greeted me in my neighbours yard!  Lilies - masses of them, almost all out in bloom.  It took my breath away.  I wish these were in my yard!

Then I did go back into my own yard, and discovered I had some pretties there as well.

I should have lowered my settings to reflect the bright sunshine, but truthfully these roses are both pink and red  - aren't they heavenly?  And there are hundreds of buds on my bushes - these are the plants that I freed from quack and Campanula and boy are they rewarding me now!

You be the judge - photoshop - or not?
