Apple Blossoms

Here is a photo I took today of some apple blossoms. And I also used some filters to try to make it look like a painting.

what do you think, it is kind of small to see the details.

Like you said... "Too small to tell."

Nice pic to work with, though.

My shot at it.

Kathy, Let me say what a beautiful shot. The perfect shallow depth of field, deep saturation because of the open shadow setting which gave you that great saturation. It all clicked, nice shot!

Re: Apple Blossoms

Here is my meager attempt at art. I used a modified version of Swampy's Watercolor Tutorial.

Re: Apple Blossoms

Colite,

Don't sell yourself short. That actually looks pretty sweet. I might bump up the contrast a bit, maybe a find a true black and white using curves?

Looks good though,

Sweetlight thanks for the complement I'm just practiceing with the new camera I got, and I really like yours it is real dreamy, did you do it with a blur or smudge?

Hi Jim I have used her watercolor tutorial a lot it is neat how it comes out different when you change the brushes. I like yours too.

I'm really glad you all took the time to work on the photo.
