Flowers on Saturday II

My entry..............

Thanks to everyone who recommended editing software last week.  I did use picmonkey to crop and add some color saturation.  I love how it looks, but it feels like I am cheating because this is not exactly what I snapped.
This is what I snapped below........

These hydrangeas were really quite pretty in person.  I love the variation in the color from blues to pinks and purples.  They aren't my flowers, darn it!!  I was dog sitting when I took these.  Hopefully later on I can share some flowers from my yard.
But for now ....


cheating again with some cropping and color play.


I LOVE FLOWERS and I am loving playing with the photos on picmonkey - Thanks again for the recommendation.


Had to add some butterflies to the one above!


This one (above) obviously has had no editing.

while this one has.

  4. Roxanne, Beautiful photos! I love hydrangeas but have never grown one myself. Would love to have one in my garden someday. Thank you for visiting me! I'm looking forward to seeing more of your gorgeous photography. Happy Easter!

  5. I figure it is two different things entirely. I love SOOC and trying to get that perfect picture straight out of the camera, while I love playing with those pictures and turning them into works of art. You've done an excellent job of both.

  10. That first unedited shot is really quite beautiful. I'm glad you're having fun playing around with picmonkey. I noticed they're continuing to add features. It's almost Picnik and I'm very very happy!

  11. I love hydrangeas, I bought a pot of them the other day, at the moment they are indoors, just have to find time to plant them outside
    YOur photos look amazing :)
    I want to say big thank you for your comment on my blog, I have to say when I first started blogging and linking up with all the photo memes it took me a while to find out what all descriptions mean for instance SOOC
    HAppy Easter!!
