I took two photos of this daisy, but couldn't decide on which background I liked best, so I decided to post them both. I processed the photo using the blur filter in Photoshop on the background and just a very small amount of Topaz Impression. If you want to see both photos, just click on the photo on the right.

To see both images, just click on the daisy.

I found some osteospermum flowers on my walk yesterday. I tried to photograph and process them a little differently from my usual process. Here are two examples. I'm not sure if I like them. The first one has a gradient background, and the second one has a painterly background. Click on the image to see both versions.

I have discovered the beauty of the Ranunculus flower. I have previously added a red, yellow and a pink ranunculus to my collection. The latest addition is a white Ranunculus. I'm hoping to get some more blooms from the plants I bought, so I can practice taking more photos.
