    Such a gorgeous image of simply yet fabulous flowers…love the angle…looks like the’re being caressed by the wind, and the dreamy effect is definitely there…Lovely imagery!

  • Thank you for your lovely comment, Marie. :o) There was a bit of a breeze when I often had to pause and wait for the wind to drop before I could photograph the flowers.

    Wow Wow and Wow again, Maggie! This is just so ‘you’ – soft and dreamy with just lovely color and so soothing to the eye…. Super gorgoeus!

    I have to look into ‘actions’, like you with layer masking (formerly), they sort of scare me.

  • Thank you, Katherine, I’m pleased you like it. :o)
    I mostly use Coffeeshop Baking with Mom Ethereal Textures for the soft dreamy look.

    Wonderfully light and airy feeling, dynamic angle — excellent work!

  • Thank you, Celeste. The angle was wholly natural as the weight of the flowers was pulling them down – a light breeze added to it. :o)
