Whenever I buy flowers, I always find myself photographing them individually or in their bouquet form. When this bouquet started to fade, I was about to throw them out when I decided that drooping faded flowers had their own beauty to work with. Above is the original photo.
This is an infrared version.
This version has some other processing added. I like them all.
For the past four years, I've belonged to an "Art Challenge" group. We challenge each other to a topic and each member creates a piece of art based on that topic. One of challenges four years ago was "Popcorn". I created the above image and called it "Cocktails at Orville's".
Another challenge that first year was "Water". I called the above photo "Polished Water". I used my software to manipulate a photo of the water of a fountain. I love our art challenge group. It really gets you to think about the subject and get the creative juices flowing.
