Spring Color


There are many colors that "speak" spring. For me, lilac or purple is one of them. This is just a simple shot with my macro lens facing almost toward the light. Of course I was down on the ground on Third Avenue getting this shot. I always wonder who is laughing at me!

I decided to use a photo tint (from Shadowhouse Creations ) to add the purple hue and faded to about 30%. While I love textures, sometimes it is a simple change in hues or color that will do.

Have a wonderful week! I just have to say that I'm glad to be back!

  3. This is an absolutely great shot and editing from s.Creations!
    Wow, looks very interesting,
    I always wonder what kind of editing is possible.
    I just imagine you on the ground while taking this picture, ;-)
    This could be Brigitte. My neighbours always smile when looking at me,
    laying in the gras of my garden pointed the macro lens on a tiny snale of beetle.
    Have a great week, Sarah!

  7. Lovely green and purple. Your image does remind me of spring. I have never used a photo tint, I will have to look into that. On the ground is an acceptable place for a good photographer, especially when a good image come out of the situation. I have even been there myself a time or two. :)

  9. My neighbor just laughs and says, If I didn't know what you were doing I would think you were crazy. Well, maybe we are just a tad crazy too. :)
