I love the way these purple globe asters look right when they’re about to open. I captured this beauty in my front yard and I softened the rest of the background and added the white vignette so this lovely gal could get all the attention, and added French Kiss Atelier “Soar” to complete the portrait.

    I agree with you about the beauty of this stage in the young aster’s life, and I love the way you’ve made it look as if it is emerging from a soft abstract painting. Wonderful colors in a beautifully composed image, an absolute delight!

  • Thank you so much for your wonderful comments and the fave, Celeste! I really appreciate the way you take the time to compose a comment that so perfectly captures the essence of an image.
