Soft Kisses on a Summer's Day by 


This photo was inspired by the beautiful Queen of the Prairie flowers floating about our yard on their long, graceful stems. It was originally done for Kim Klassen’s Start to Finish Class (in which I am woefully behind!) with a frame and the title quote on the image, but for RedBubble I removed both. The title is from “A Summer Song” by Chad and Jeremy. Oh, how I loved that song back in the day…

I made some basic adjustments in LR5 then applied Kim’s likeadream preset and moved to Photoshop CS6 where I added some more contrast and then used two layers of Kim’s Cora, one set to soft light, the other to multiply, both at about 60% opacity.

Nikon D700 with Nikon 105mm micro lens.

    I remember the song well. It was one of those summer anthems that became part of the season, and your soft pink blossoms seem perfect with that title. Dreamy texture work too!

  • Thank you so much for your lovely comments and the fave, Celeste! And yes, that song really was a summer anthem, and of course I can’t get it out of my head now!
