One March Morning

By Fefe
Morning all, hope you had a good weekendGrin Thankyou all for C&C on my last upload "Fuengirola Fish Frenzy" Much apprieciatedGrinGrinGrin

Now this one..... had a right old mess about yesterday, and came up with this..... a first attempt at a still life. It started of with taking shots of some Daffodils abd Gerbera's on white paper, then I remembered a table cloth that I got from a charity shop to use for this kind of thing...........and it went from there, processed in my usual way but with a slight watercolour effect addedSmile...... I will see what you thinkTongueSadWinkBlushGrin

Not sure if the Costa Del Sol uploads are done, I have more but dont want to bore youBlush

I like it. It is very natural looking, and doesn't look at all contrived. A most pleasing image.

A very natural looking still life Diane. Does not look at all arranged.

There are three small things that catch my eye.

The daff. on top could be turned so the gap which looks like a missing petal is replaced by...well, a petal.

The small splodge of colour above the book distracts as it's right on the frame, and, I wondered why there appears to be a fold in the cloth lower right - looks as if it needs smoothing out.

Other than that, an attempt to be proud of.Smile

Now I'm off to play with my Ker-PlunkWink
