Study for Red & Green is a new photo, just edited this morning. Buds for this flower are crowding their pots and a few have started opening, like the one in this picture. I keep waiting, thinking next spring I won't find their buds as fascinating or their open blooms as spectacular, that habituation will have set in. But thankfully that's not happened yet and judging from the enjoyment on the faces of long time Cafifornia residents, it may never happen. (Yay!) However, one thing that is becoming more and more habitual is how I do "post production." That's why I keep trying to push the limits, going for different effects and colors, trying to prompt some new ways of seeing through this old lady's eyes.
And as I typed that I got the urge to fool further with this photo, so here's another way of looking at it, Seeking the Sun:
I think I may like "Seeking the Sun" more than "Study for Red & Green," though am concerned that the painting-like look might be perceived as poor focus, and not as intentional on my part.
