Autumn Monarch by Renee Dawson

Photographic Prints


I’ve entered the word of layering images and it is SO MUCH FUN! After my first week of practice this is the first creation I felt was worthy of upload to RB.

This work of art includes the combination of 2 images – a monarch butterfly, and a black-eyed susan.

I enhanced the colors in 3 sections of the monarch’s wing to tie the colors in the composition together and purposely made the butterfly smaller than life.

I have entered an entirely new world here and am excited at the possibilities that lie ahead as I search through my extensive collection of images for future works :o)

    Simply stunning Renee – you have reminded me of the niche thing, and I think macro shots of flowers and insects is definitely yours. Well done indeed. This is really a fabulous creation. Cheers, S.
