I have to admit that I don't generally go for composite shots... but this really caught my eye in the thumbs and closer inspection is rewarding - it's a lovely, gentle, balanced image. Carol

A+ for this entire effort--- the colors--earthy and muted, the shapes in the bg working well with the subject giving the sense of timelessness-- Wonderful--- Jennnn

It is wonderful stuff mould.From the discovery of Penicillin,to a play around in Photoshop !!They have even written a song about it ---''Mouldy Old Dough''. A good take of this much maligned substance Helen.

Thanks Mick and Carol. To be fair I was not at all sure how this would be received, but it was a good exercise and I will definitely try it again.

It looks very much like an old photo that has faded over the years & lost all it's colour.....you know, those that you find in a tattered old box in the attic.
I admire what you have done & achieved, but not for me I'm afraid.

Well you've given it a fair viewing here and on FB and so I know that it hasn't grown on you Hilary. I agree about the aged look and the mould has engulfed the flower too. Thanks for your comments though

Good creative work Helen. Personally I would like to see it a little brighter and what colour there is a bit more saturated.

Tiny and fragile-looking with the manipulation. Truly beautiful, dream-like.

Well worth the time Helen this has worked a treat. I love the tone of the image and the background is perfect for this grape hyacinth which has a frosty look to it on my screen. It does look antique and is very attractive,

Definitely A+ Helen, for idea, composition and execution. The background could almost be a mountainscape - think Alps behind an edelweiss - timeless and truly lovely.
