“Your thoughts, words and deeds are painting the world around you.” – Jewel Diamond Taylor
I’ve had a little mental lapse recently. Blogging hasn’t come as easy. I’m not sure if it is that I can’t decide on which images to post – I have been shooting quite a bit – or if it is the fact that the creative side of my brain has left for a sabbatical. Whatever the case, tonight I ran across this quote and remembered I recently took a lot of shots of some lilies. In my editing process I had changed some of the images to appear as watercolor paintings. The link between the image and quote is…painting.
As you have most likely noticed, the editing that I do to my images is minimal. I am a pretty traditional girl and tend to stick to the way things are when it comes to my photography style. Keeping it real, keeping it simple. Every now and again, though, I do force myself out of my box. What do you think? Do you like this style of editing? It doesn’t work for all images as this editing process removes detail and tends to blow things out a bit. I’ve seen digital paintings, I now need to research what constitutes digital paintings. Is it something as simple as this?
Same image, two very different editing styles. Which do you like best, for this image?
I like the original one…it’s beautifully tender and authentic…what a delicate photograph!
Thank you for your kind words and for taking time to express your opinion Steph! Your comments and compliments always mean the world to me!
I prefer the original one. The gradation of the red color is softer and more natural.
Thanks so much for your response Chris! I appreciate it.
I loved the watercolor
Thanks so much. It’s fun to see the different opinions.
Both are lovely though
I prefer the first one (watercolor style), I have a thing for graphic renderings, though I don’t tend to apply them to my own images. the original is lovely, too, but the rendering gives a certain extra to the image
hope blogging will come easier for you again – I always look forward to your posts 🙂
Many thanks Eva!
Beautiful, Robyn! Colours are very much needed in these dark autumn days – for soul, spirit, mood and eyes.
Thank you, Esenga! These dark days do need brightening! I think they are part of my mental block.
