From Beach Flower and Shadow to This

It started as a documentary photo of a rare beach flower that shows up every June and makes the Bonners Landing beach noteworthy. But, what started as a simply yellow flower, after a bit of 'seeing to' ended up as ... not really sure.
Other worldly!

Beautiful and so painterly - love the subtle colour tones and the strong silhouette -- Huge fav :)

Beautiful editing:)

… as a rather fetching kinda abstract image.

Loving the tones and textures. You sure did give it a “seeing to” ! Lol!

I like the way it ended up, I think one of the things 365 has given me is the fact that photography is so much more than just documentary. It is a creative process.

... a rather cool abstract ...

Nice creative piece

I'm not sure what to write, you produce great work but this one doesn't do it for me. I am curious about the original shot of the beach flower.

A beautiful image :)

Stunning image for me. Excellent processing. Fav.

I'm with @gamelee I would love to see the original flower, especially as it is rare. This is a fascinating play with shadows, almost like a sundial, the shadow is so straight.

As interesting and abstract - and tantalizing! The flower stalk seen here just begs lots of questions about the original. :)

Think its rather eyecatching

This feels like it is an ink drawing. Original in the transformation. Would love to see the flower.

Love this !!!

“Me and my shadow”. Fabulous processing, Taffy!

@gamelee @casablanca Thanks, as always, for your comments and interest. Here's what they look like when growing (and processed) naturally: https://365project.org/taffy/the-also-ran-ph/2018-06-13
Lee, I may be with you on this one. I like aspects of it, but it's not leading me to rethink my more typical style!

Great abstract of a yellow flower! Love the processing!
June 14th, 2018  
Really fun to look at both. Your processing makes for a very unique image. I vote for ..... both!

Like what you've done with this Taffy Fav

I like the abstract look of this image and the soft colors and textures...well done.
June 14th, 2018  
Beautiful image!
June 14th, 2018  
Incredible picture.
June 14th, 2018  
I very much like the abstract feel of this. Love the interesting background and the right angle you have produced with the flower and its shadow. Fav

Beautiful edit

Love the 'seeing to'.FAV
June 14th, 2018  
Lovely fav
June 14th, 2018  
Well, whatever it is, it is really cool looking.
June 14th, 2018  
Well done
June 14th, 2018  
It certainly ended up as something which caught my attention - in a good way. The background is super and I really like the way the flower is fading in and out of the background at the edges.
June 15th, 2018  
Lol! A “ little” seeing to! A tricky selection job and a really nice outcome. I like your choice of texture
June 15th, 2018  
great background
June 15th, 2018  
well done.
June 16th, 2018  
Nice treatment!

Looks like a painting. So pretty, Taffy.
