fighting shadows

I didn't want them,
couldn't avoid them,
worked with them,
now I love them
Beautifully simple!! Love that purple!

Very simple and effective. The shadow makes the shot.

This is beautiful. If the shadow wasn't there, it would look flat, love it.
February 8th, 2012  
Absolutely beautiful!! The purple is amazing, and the shadows give it so much depth. :)
February 8th, 2012  
nice colour and the shadow gives it depth

Beautiful photo. I love the lighting and the shadow. I was going to try to tie in a joke about how you got the flowers from your husband, but I couldn't come up with anything funny. I blame my lack of sleep.

Glad youve embraced your dark side. The shadows really make this. Looks much more 3d. Lovely

I can SO relate to your caption. The simplicity of this is just stunning. This is a total framer for sure! Fav.
February 8th, 2012  
Haha! I see we were just trading favs there:)

@pwallis weird...I was just going through my shots wondering which ones are frame worthy. I have an empty 14x11 sitting in the corner waiting to be filled!

@shutterbugger this one would look grand up on a wall, in my opinion.
February 8th, 2012  
Jenn, I like what you shared about the shadows and how you connected them with a flower. The simplicity of your shot is very powerful. Fav.
February 8th, 2012  
Beautiful shot and lovely composition. The shadow makes it!
February 8th, 2012  
lovely!
February 8th, 2012  
I really like this image. Composition is simple but very effective. Colours are great and I like the vignetting. Did you do the vignetting in post or is the vignetting the result of the light source with modifier?
February 8th, 2012  
@davetom the vignetting is the result of me not knowing what I'm doing. I was fighting shadows and that could be one of them! It might also be from an LR preset that I was playing with. Thanks David! I've started making the odd greeting cards...and took this one with that in mind.
February 8th, 2012  
@loragill Thank you so much Lora!
February 8th, 2012  
I think the vignetting is an important part of the composition. The image would be definitely less powerful without it. I just notice the vignetting was not even (the bottom vignetting is greater than the top). I think it works well with the watermark.

Jas
