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?
