By NDODS    
Good morning to you all.

Firstly I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your most welcomed comments, votes and wonderful messages following yesterdays 'Rose' upload. A further mentioned going to the following for their User Awards: pentaxpatty (Patricia), Ted447 (Ted), TyCHee (Ty), Williamsloan (Willie), TrevBatWCC (Trevor), Myrab (Myra), Natureshaven (Julia) and last but not least Glostocat (Ed). I was originally going to be uploading a photograph of the painting that I have been working on as part of my PTSD Therapy, however as some of you know yesterday was pretty pants following a seizure so that wiped out most of my day and plans. This also prevented me from viewing and commenting on all of your work which I usually endeavour to do, so I apologise whole heartedly.

Todays upload is a stand by and alongside the other was created as part of my University Course. It is very understated, however I rather like it, it is uncomplicated and easy to read a bit like me really?

Well I hope that you all have a great day, I will try to get back on track with my painting, and have it uploaded as soon as one can.

Regards as always, and thank you all once again.

In this particular case I think the added pattern is a distraction from an otherwise wonderful image.

A fine image Nathan but I actually wonder how much that texture has added to it. I find it just a little distracting.

It is not a ''stand alone'' flower shot Nathan,
but an expression of your creativity.
So well done for that.
Beautiful colours and such a beautiful image Nathan..

Hope you are back on your own track soon..GrinGrin

Quite unreal with the patterning of the bg petals but why shouldn't we let our imaginations have a free rein from time to time.!!!!!!

I think the important point about this image is to view it in the context of the description, and the tags. Its an art project, digitally manipulated, using a Clematis as a base.

When viewed as such, its very good. When viewed as a Clematis shot, its not so good, as the artwork is vying for attention.

Great work Nathan, and deserves every one of those 70 votes. (So far) Smile

Feel a bit mixed on this one Nathan. I like the flower as a stand alone image,
, but feel the b/g conflicts ... Personal taste.... Look forward to the painting Wink
