Flowers on Saturday III

This is my entry for Flowers on Saturday.  I did crop the photo and added a frame and matting to the photo on Picmonkey.



I took this photo at Belterra last summer.  I used this as a screensaver for awhile as that was my purpose behind taking the photo. I knew that if it turned out it would be a nice screensaver. This was a large, fresh cut arrangement that was sitting on a table in the hallway.  It was simply beautiful.  Large and real! I was amazed when I discovered the arrangement was live flowers.


This is the original photo (above).  I also did some more cropping and playing on Picmonkey. (below)


Cropped this one, played with color saturation, added the faded effect and text. You can see in the photo above this one where this flower was.


I don't especially care for the photo above and while I generally love this type of flower, I guess the colors are keeping me from loving them.  I took these at Belterra too.  Belterra is a gambling boat and hotel about an 1-1/2 outside of Louisville in Indiana.  We have a girls weekend there a couple times a year.  It is so much fun!  Of course, I just love staying in a hotel - doesn't matter where it is. I love it!  Okay, here is an edit I did of this photo

This is my entry for Tones on Tuesday.......(just found the party)

I think it turned out pretty cool.  Thank you guys so much for stopping by!  If you leave a comment (which I love) I will respond here.  My next post will be on my other favorite subject SANIBEL ISLAND!!!

  4. Those flowers are gorgeous! I haven't played around with changing up pics very much. My editing skills are limited to resizing photos for the internet. I'd love to do this some day.

  15. Not being a nit-picker, cuz that's not who I am -- but in the future, could you put the button in your blog post? Or a text link would be okay too. :)
