Well, no sooner said than done ... these two today were just taken yesterday and worked on this morning. They are of some of the late season blooms we get in our memorial rose garden. Applause, Applause (11-9-13) is above. It's one of those rare photos I haven't messed with a whole lot (only cropped and slightly color saturated). As is my wont, most of the pix in this new batch are already "going abstract" or at least being heavily fussed with. Like Winter Sun (11-09-13) below:

I have to admit that both these pix are an awful lot like other flower center pix of mine. Yet, I have begun to wonder if that might not actually be OK. As long as I also keep trying out other approaches and learning about new functions I can apply. In any case, I have the luxury of pretty much doing what I please with my pix, answering really only to my own inner critic. (E.g., I'm not trying to win contests with or sell my photos, or even develop lots of traffic to this blog.) Though I'd best not make light of my inner critic's influence, which can be rather intense.
