Breaking the Color Barrier

By tonymarq
Hi everyone and hope everyone is starting off onto a great holiday weekend! Just getting in and it's about 1:00am and as you can see boredom as this is all over the place,out on a limb but had fun with color and digital effect. Reminds me of when i ask mom for a recipe as it's a little of this and a little of that a sprinkle then a smidge and wa-la, done!Wanted to mix b&w with color and give the crocus a neon type glow with hints of other color as well as there purple.will catch up tommorow as my pillow is calling me!

A Safe and Happy Easter to one and all on EPZ!!

stay well

This is fantastic, Tony, so well presented. I like the way the almost monochrome background contrasts with the colour of the crocuses, which seem to glow in the sun. Excellent!

great presentation as always Tony, this looks like it was taken with one of those special focus lenses, i forget what they are called, they kind of give you selective focus, very nice!
