Creative interpretations: Tropical Plant

I was on a mission yesterday to get some pictures of industries and businesses in the south end of the county. There is a HUGE greenhouse operation down there and I caught this shot in macro mode.

Play and have fun..

wow... no takers so far, I guess I'll throw my hat into the ring first then

I'm trying to be more expressive and free form with my art, less clincal and precise and not obsess over going 'over the lines' etc, basically let it all hang out.

Like this photo Swampy lots of possibilities
Over hear it is called Peace Lily and is grown as a house plant it's botanical name is "Spathiphyllum" ( i will admit to looking it up as not that brainy and the common name will usually do for me ! )

On this i used the ahb and pastels filter

Palms... very nice. The plant is so simple it can hold up to a lot of manipulation. I can almost see brush strokes in yours.

Steve... I like the flower but love the way the background became so varigated in colors!

A by-product of bringing out the edges I guess. There is more color there than I had previously noticed.

Thanks...
