Hey Linda, don't ever hesitate to ask/comment if curious or if something struck you... but was definitely wondering if I got away with it.
The image was so strong emotionally and visually that I only gave it a passing thought :|

A close-up bit of a pussywillow tree

Spring is busting out all over, though they're predicting some snow for Sunday :|

Your impressions and suggestions would be appreciated. Texture added to background, sharpening tool used (hopefully sparingly) on the buds.

Re: Not exactly a texture, not really a composite - just a lot of fun

When you see the image it makes sense, but looking at the two separate they are so different from one another it's amazing. I've always been curious about people motivations, why someone invented this, or combined this photo with that one, and of course more importantly how people see. What I love ...

Re: three from today

thanks Matt, Frank, Dave, Linda -- 1, and 2 were documentation of things I had not seen before. 3 was a dream/mood interpretation of what might have been. The birds were shot the same morning, the attached is what I started with after ACR processing of raw file. It seemed boring and washed out. I t...

Re: Two from this morning

Piet, Matt, Minnie - thanks so much! It was fun to see the sparrow land on the mirror within seconds of my turning off the car engine. For #1 I added a bit selective sharpness via a brush with sharpening tool in Elements, probably only the third time I've used that tool. The sparrow was already well...

Re: three from today

The oystercatcher looks like it just finished a very, very messy feast of a buffet! Eagle looks like it would like to be elsewhere (warmer, sunnier). #3 is stunning, mesmerizing!

Re: These Feet were made for Dancing

Re: Not exactly a texture, not really a composite - just a lot of fun

Wow, just Wow! I think you've found your thing! I love this and how you came upon it, but wonder what made you think to put the two together? So beautiful! S- Thanks so much, Steve! I'm delighted you enjoyed. I think it was because the original daisy photo was already blurred and the after-edited b...
