All that remains - 3

By helenlinda
Many thanks for the many clicks and comments on yesterday's playground shadow - they were much appreciated
I have uploaded two previous images of this lilly. This third upload is better balanced
[For those of you who are interested I have used two textured layers to make the marble like background. One is from the inside of an old metal bucket and the other from the inside of a saucepan after I had cooked pasta in it. Its interesting that along with dead flowers something beautiful can be created SmileSmileSmile
Thanks for looking and I hope you are enjoying the sunshine SmileSmile

Love the subdued hues to this, Helen. It is tranquil and comforting to look at.

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness;

Your images ensure that...

Lovely work, Helen.

I loved these before when you uploaded similar shots.
I love these too and o for one was thrilled to learn how you achieved the'marble' effect.
Who apart from you would think to take a pic of pasta pot!
