While I'm in my arty phase, a still life with a touch of Topaz.
My thanks to all who voted or commented on Elegant Dining yesterday.
I know these arty images aren't everybody's cup of tea but I can't draw
so Photography and Photoshop give me an opportunity to discover my hidden artist!
Have a great weekend.

I didn't have the chance to give you an UA for your last shot, and since this is sooooo pretty, arty, well lit and composed and of my complete liking, I will give it to you today! Smile

Well arranged image and certainly artistic. As things stand, I prefer the mono V2, which is excellent, as I find the subject stands out better. I do like the colour ov V1 but I find my eye a little distracted by the lighter areas on the leaves behind. I think a little selective burning and desaturation and possibly a little blurring in the BG could enhance this already good image.

Well done you Kate for exploiting the software as an outlet for your hidden artist. I can draw and paint but Photoshop is a lot quicker than oil paints I can tell you!

Love the colour version.

This has to be colour, for the sunflowers and also for the green bottles against the white table top.
I like the way you have composed the foreground, the flowers seem to have strong individual characters. From left to right: dramatic, self-important; dejected and weary; imploring.
What doesn't work for me is the bright green in the background foliage, it jumps too far forward. A background needs to be that, to stay well back. So I definitely want to tone down the acid tones in the oof foliage.

Whilst I admire the romanticism and poetise of monochrome, one feels that monochrome does this image no justice. The colour adds and instant lift and provides one with a warm and somewhat comforting composition Kate.

What a beautiful still life with beautiful colours - the only thing that detracts a little from the overall image is the sweeping long green foliage I'm afraid, looks like a bull's horn. Angela

The colour version for me by a mile Kate, I think a plain background would have worked better and been less distracting. Next time you try this you could use a groundsheet or bed sheet as a background. Tomcat does that at the coppice when photographing birds and butterflies so that he gets a nice clear background

very nice indeed, a very good comp.
if you pull the bottles more towards you and you use a bigger opening the background will simply disappear into bokeh Smile no nasty highlights. No PS needed, it will be just fine.
