    I like this one a lot also.. both very different in their moods. Interesting how the same subject can convey such a different feeling via the colors and textures….In this one I focus more on the Lavender and in the other image I focus more on the entire image including the background.

    I think they are both lovely and show your creative skill..!

  • Thanks, Katherine for your lovely detailed comment. There is such a variety of ways to edit images, and I’m only scratching the surface – it’s a wonderful journey of discovery.

    It’s the beautifully soft background that sets this up so well Maggie and the crisp purple and detail of the bud sit so very well against it.

  • Thanks, Stuart. :o))

    gorgeous, and glad you posted both, each have their own wonderful quality and I think I’d have been the same and not been able to choose between the 2!

  • LOL! I quite like to see the heavily textured work on RB and I’m glad that this one turned out okay – I’ve had a to dump a few that didn’t quite make it. (Must learn Mask layers!!). Thanks for commenting. :o)
