I sure like this, Carletta! It feels like I could just reach out and pick off a blossom.

I have to admit that brown and green are two of my favorite colors together. And this would be PERFECT in my kitchen. It is beautiful. And I love the selective coloring!

I love almost sepia background to this photo; it makes the flowers stand out nicely...

Marie Höglund said...

Gorgeous!

Very nicely done. I love that colour green. It is so fresh. Like the framing. How did you do that. Valerie

I love doing stuff like this Carletta, although I have never tried sepia only mono but this is very nice, well done!

The green works surprisingly well with the sepia. Nice work.

Marice said...

Amanda said...

Definitely frameworthy!

Patti said...

Selective sepia is really nice. I will have to check out Mary's tutorial. T

This is a pretty closeup photo. I love dogwood.

Jientje said...

That reminds me I want to buy one, I love dogwood but mine has died two years ago! I love the effect you used, very well done!

Artlover said...

Wow, I love it. Well done...

Shannara said...

Lovely.

Ralph said...

Wonderful! The sepia background mutes that clutter while allowing the color of these buds to show so nicely. We are using the I-Photo on our Mac, which doesn't allow the selective. Perhaps Gimp (it is free!) software does - perhaps I'l download soon...

Tricia said...

Oh Carletta, I really like what you've done here - The sepia in the background & the colored buds are so pretty & I, of course, love that frame! Very elegant

George said...

I really like what you've done with this picture. It is really beautiful.

Quilldancer said...

This is lovely! Have you considered opening an online shop and marketing your photos?

Thom said...

How breathtaking, Carletta! I love the pale green against the sepia. The petals are beautiful and delicate looking.

Is it so early that the dogwood buds already come out in your area. Beautiful shot, ours have to wait for another 4 months.

Sherrie said...
