Harebells

In the sea breeze.

I've posted the original shot and the processing notes in the forum for anyone who wants the technical stuff.

Jose, this is exceptionally beautiful. I love everything about this image; its softness, colors, treatment, etc. Likey for me.
pixelpixie: Thanks again Kay, getting harder to find the harebells now as summer slips away and it being so wet, so I'm very happy to have this as a memento.
You know flower shots aren't my thing, Duckie, but I really like this! smile
pixelpixie: Lol, I wouldn't have guessed! Really pleased you like it though smile

Lovely......
pixelpixie: Thank-you so much Dudee. You have some wonderful shots in your archive - you need to post more!
Really beautiful image.
pixelpixie: Thanks again bridge, I'm really pleased you're liking my flower pics.
Dreamy shot. I like the shallow DOF.
pixelpixie: Cheers Martin, lol, I've got to get my money's worth out of this new lens!
Beautiful image, with all your "trademark" qualities- delicacy, glorious colour, just the right amount of detail and edgy crop. I've been toying with it for ages wondering if I would shave a wee bit off the left edge, but then it wouldn't look like one of your specials, it would just be ordinary! Joins the series!
pixelpixie: Lol, a wee bit off the top edge wouldn't have come a miss but I have to have all that is to the left wink - that's me! The original shot wasn't anything special you know - I came clean and posted it in the forums with the raw file processing.
such a beautiful, sleepy blue...love the soft delicacy of these flowers in that soft open space..they look like they are swaying in a warm summer breeze.
pixelpixie: They were Suzanne but it was so grey and dull, I had to replicate how I saw them in my mind (I posted the original shot in the forum with the raw file adjustments) rather than post it how it was.

Beautiful colours and softness
pixelpixie: Thanks very much Steve - sorry to be replying so belatedly.

simply superb (and superbly simply!)
pixelpixie: Thank-you Paul - is today's daisy triptych any better than yesterday's lonesome one?
What a beautiful, delicate image with such clarity of colour I love the shallow depth of field and agree with David about the composition.
Ingrid
pixelpixie: Thanks Ingrid. I think David has a point but it would be to shave just a little of the top edge - all that lefthand space is sacred!

You realize, Jose Ann, that this would make a great set on the wall...or as greeting cards!

You definitely have a signature touch about you!!!
pixelpixie: That Ginnie is a lovely thing to say. I did wonder if I could gather enough flowery images of a similar feel together, whether to approach a card manufacturer - I'll let you know if I managed to do it!
simply amazing, a LIKEY!!!

and Ginnie is right, pefect for the wall!! A Huge print, I would do, but then again I like bold things.
pixelpixie: That's lovely of you to say Patrick. Sorry for being so behind in replying. smile

You are going to have to start sharing out the Pp stuff, its the law in these parts you know! Hey I like this and I don't like flower shots!
pixelpixie: I'll email you a before shot (which looks very, very average) with what I did. I was rather taken aback with the response to this. If you don't like flower shots, I feel very complimented indeed. Thank-you!

Beautiful cool blue. I had some of these in my garden but they have gone over now.
pixelpixie: Thank-you Lilith, I really enjoyed capturing the Harebells and I'm sad now that they are all going over here too. I think it's rained everyday except once this week so I don't expect to find any when I re-visit this spot again.
Really, really lovely photo.....so soft.
pixelpixie: Thank-you so much Mary smile
Interesting Shot!
pixelpixie: Thank-you Chacha and thank-you for your visit too.

Beautifully delicate, much like yourself, blush.
You certainly have an eye for an original take on a familiar subject. Have you ever seen John Blakemore's work?
pixelpixie: Such a lovely thing to say - and I'm blushing now too.

John Blakemore, yes I know his work, I'm a big fan. Wasn't it he who did a lot of black and white stuff of trees and woods, trying to catch the wind? Rather I should say he was photographing the wind and using the trees to express it.

Another simple but effective image, looks great.
pixelpixie: Thanks Les - we have a beautiful coastline round here don't we wink
This picture is very calming. I almost feel like drifting off to sleep just looking at it. Well done!
pixelpixie: What a lovely thing to say Bisola, thank-you!
Really is a very nice look. I like very much this.
pixelpixie: Thanks once again!

pixelpixie: Lol,I can see I'm going to have to post something with a ghostly figure in it!
