Lilies from Easter

Posted by

On Easter Day, these were all buds.
*************************************************************

YESTERDAY'S BACKGROUND - A number of people commented on yesterday's background. It was natural. I am terrible when it comes to creating backgrounds. I need to take lessons from Barbara Kile.

NIKON D700 1/80 second F/10.0 ISO 1600 42 mm (35mm equiv.)

Good morning Jack! The fund yesterday ... I did not see anything special ... also perhaps because I have problems with background or perhaps precisely because they were so powerful flowers or perhaps because there are tastes for everyone! I usually look at the whole impact and normally I receive total! Well we do courses with Mrs. Barbara Kile!!! Who is not but never mind! The lily is a marvel today (including the background which is excellent!) A big hug Jack! and opinions are always subjective! Happy weekend! Adela

What beautiful Stargazer lilies these are; you captured them wonderfully, Jack. I love this type, but many are allergic to their strong fragrance.

Lovely light. If you want to use backgrounds/textures/overlays created by others that are free, go to here. Not that I'm discouraging you from taking lessons from Barbara.
