I didn't have the chance to give you an UA for your last shot, and since this is sooooo pretty, arty, well lit and composed and of my complete liking, I will give it to you today! Smile

Love those green bottles!
This is a great still. Magic light and colour with good detail give this wonderful impact. Well done Kate.

Well arranged image and certainly artistic. As things stand, I prefer the mono V2, which is excellent, as I find the subject stands out better. I do like the colour ov V1 but I find my eye a little distracted by the lighter areas on the leaves behind. I think a little selective burning and desaturation and possibly a little blurring in the BG could enhance this already good image.

Definitely the colour version with nice combination of yellows & greens.. Love the bottles & nicely presented good work Wink

I am in the same boat as you Kate, I can't draw either and have to rely on photography to express any artistic leanings I may have, but this is lovely and very artistic.GrinGrinGrin

The colour version clicks with me, Kate, the yellow of the blooms with the dark green glassware.......lovely work.

Well done you Kate for exploiting the software as an outlet for your hidden artist. I can draw and paint but Photoshop is a lot quicker than oil paints I can tell you!

Love the colour version.

This has to be colour, for the sunflowers and also for the green bottles against the white table top.
I like the way you have composed the foreground, the flowers seem to have strong individual characters. From left to right: dramatic, self-important; dejected and weary; imploring.
What doesn't work for me is the bright green in the background foliage, it jumps too far forward. A background needs to be that, to stay well back. So I definitely want to tone down the acid tones in the oof foliage.

Whilst I admire the romanticism and poetise of monochrome, one feels that monochrome does this image no justice. The colour adds and instant lift and provides one with a warm and somewhat comforting composition Kate.

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin
a great trio and patriotic colours,and you are getting very arty.

Very nice image Kate,
love your green bottles.

What a beautiful still life with beautiful colours - the only thing that detracts a little from the overall image is the sweeping long green foliage I'm afraid, looks like a bull's horn. Angela

Excellent piece of work Kate - really like this. Prefer the colour but the mono shows the shadows well.
18 Aug 2013 7:36AM
for me Kate it would have to be V1 with the same comment about the background being a wee bit of a distraction good choice of bottles

Good colours and the perfect colour choice for the bottles. I think all flower images should be in colour so it is V1 for meGrin

The colour version for me by a mile Kate, I think a plain background would have worked better and been less distracting. Next time you try this you could use a groundsheet or bed sheet as a background. Tomcat does that at the coppice when photographing birds and butterflies so that he gets a nice clear background

Golly gosh love this one ,I love yellow and the photography s crystal clear,it's a winner for sure

very nice indeed, a very good comp.
if you pull the bottles more towards you and you use a bigger opening the background will simply disappear into bokeh Smile no nasty highlights. No PS needed, it will be just fine.
