part 2 of 2

Back in mid May I got these beautiful pictures after dropping the kids off at school in the morning. It had just finished raining and the sun came out, shining beautifully on the irises that bloom beside my driveway. Then I had some fun playing around with graduated tints and such to make these photos even more dramatic.

Here is one with a sepia tint that has been warmed, had the saturation boosted a bit, as well as having had a few other changes made to it. I love the copper tones in it as well as the old fashioned feel that is enhanced by the white picket fence in the back ground.

This soft and dreamy photo of a purple iris in the green grass in front of a white house has been given an abstracted impressionistic style. Covered in raindrops this beautiful flower stands out from the muted greens, pink and lavender gray background.

This picture started out with a house and several cars in the background. After removing the cars and making several other changes, I decided I liked the house but wanted it softer.  So then I opened it up with paint.net and multiple layers with a variety of layer properties to  make the background more soft and abstract as well as using picassa to make some other changes. This turned out beautifully with this picture; however, as I was writing this blog post it became apparent to me that the house in the background was drawing too much attention away from the flower which was supposed to be the main focal point.

The next picture darkens the house with some blue and purple tones as well as simplifying and darkening the foreground surrounding the flower. The results are truly lovely.

A soft and dreamy photo of a purple iris bud beginning to blossom surrounded by an abstracted impressionistic background of greens and earthy reds. Covered in raindrops this beautiful flower sparkles in the spring sunlight.

This photo uses the same photo editing process I described above. I love almost metallic glittery sheen on the flower  in combination with the abstract almost flame-like patterns of brownish-red and green in the background.
