12+1 Easter Eggs

By LynneJoyce  
For your delectation 12 guaranteed no calorie, non fattening Easter Eggs made from Spring images, plus an extra one just for Mikbee.

V1 is from the magical ceiling of the National History Museum in London taken on our visit last week and V's 5 & 9 are from images of the same building, which is appropriate as it is a real architectural confection. V3's source image was taken in the same building then adapted for CarolG. V11 is also from our London visit and the rest are Springtime flora and fauna.

Have a great Easter break, those of you who celebrate it, and those who don't, just enjoy the images and let me know which of them you like best.

P.S. The one I created and uploaded for Mikbee isn't the very best quality rust, but as Mick will tell you, the quality of rust does vary a lot!

Very creative, expertly produced, a nice silky colourama, our satin/silk background, which would have provided a soft cushion for the egg would have made this into a stunning composition.

That's a bit unfair Lynne, asking to choose a favourite. The first reminds me of a Faberge egg, superb, then you think you're going to the supporting cast... but they're all eggcelent. v1 and v3 stand out on my subsequent viewings. Brilliant creativity for Easter.

Nice to see your eggs are a consistent size Lynne.Every year the eggs get smaller but their boxes get bigger.And I remember the days when I could only get two of these Cadbury Creame Eggs in my pocket.Now I can get six in.And do not believe what you hear about us Scotsmen having deep pockets as mine are pretty small.Perhaps next year they will package these Creame Eggs in a box.The box would come in handy to store my wifes shoes in to save me tripping over them when I come to bed.Or perhaps it would be better to put the box over my wifes head to eleviate the sound of her snoring !!
I prefer V1 here.
After all,the price of these eggs are going through the ceiling !!

Knew, of course, who the creator of these must be viewing V1 as a thumbnail! Great work as always with V1 being my favourite. Beautiful details and sort of makes me think of a chocolate egg with its colour.

Wonderful work Lynne, on this delightful set of egg shaped images.

Happy Easter Smile
