I continue to experiment with my rather large collection of flower pictures to see what does and doesn't work.

It's proving a useful exercise as I can gear future photo sessions specifially to giving some of the resulting shots this LucisArt treatment. I'm learning rapidly that white, or light backgrounds work best and that yellow or red flowers are the trickiest to treat!

Thank you everyone Smile

Wet and windy is a fair description - my wheelie bin blew over earlier and gave me a bit of a jump! I've left it horizontal now until I'm sure the wind has calmed down properly!

Hello everyone and thank you again!

Apologies if I reply late to any of my images - my email is currently knackered and I'm having to remember to come back to check on what's happening here!

I have three bunches of Tulips to play with this weekend - if I can put my paintbrush down for long enough to take some photographs!

Nope, don't like this one as much. Think it is because of the burnt out bit on the top petals.

Hello again everyone - I've put the paint brushes away for the day and it's time to play. Sadly Hilary, Woody isn't very obliging on the decorating front.

I appreciate all your comments and am glad you approve. I also appreciate your less approving comment Cheryl and yep, the top petals are burnt out. It was a toss-up between using a photo with burnt out petals or a soft centre - I opted for the petals Smile Fingers crossed my plants have made it through the winter (fat chance) and I'll take some more shots come the summer time to experiment with.

Oh - last but not least - thank you Mike for your award Smile

Hi,

love this photo.

have you thought of sending it to the Company that make LucisArt. It would make me want to buy the product.

Regards

Sue

Thank you Sue! I did half think about submitting some pictures to the LucisArt peeps. However now that they've stopped selling the cheaper version I use I wonder if I'd have to use the Pro version? I'd have no objections to them supplying it gratis so that I could produce some pics for them Smile
