Jean-Pierre, the flowers are lovely but the light background just doesn't work with the pastel color of the flowers (IMHO). Too much sameness in the overall look of the image. I am glad you gave your wife flowers as this will put you in good stead.

Jean-Pierre,

I really like these. Gordon is probably right about the background, but overall, I think it is a wonderful shot. Better than your average still life. 8)

I'm sure that your wife was happy also. :wink:

GEEEEEEEEE I really love that image.

Boy we all see different.

I can smell the sweet fragrance from here.

I think it displays sweet softness not harsh as in dark background.

Although usually I like dark and flowers.

This is rather refreshing.

That is a really beautiful image. I love the lighting, the sharpness, the colours, in fact - EVERYTHING.

Thanks for sharing Jean-Pierre.

Best regards,
Irene

Hi Gale ! That's exactly what i tried to get: freshness without beiing high-key ! As i usually do my still-life with BLACK background, i tried to lighten a bit the overall atmosphere, and reduce the strong contrasts that i'm used to use !

...As for the background itself, although it clear, it wasn't nice enough, so i erased it completely and replaced it by a gradient one in PS !

Cheers,
Jean-Pierre

...just tried another technique to get a more "delicate" view !

I quite like it, but as this kind of "light" shot -if you see what i mean ?-, is very new for me, i'm a bit puzzled...

Does it "work" for you, and why, or why not ?

Jean-Pierre both images are outstanding. 1st image richer color & the use of the gradient my eyes start at top of picture and then work down then back up, only complaint I could have is your signature is not clear on lower right side.
2nd image lighter color & looks like dual gradient from top stops at left bulge on pink rose and then have gradient from bottom that stops at left bulge on pink rose; my eyes want to stay on top two pink roses.
This is like being asked do you like red or white wine. I like both just depends on my mood at the time which I would pick.

Jean-Pierre,

I agree with Neil in that I like both, but I think I like the first the best. The single gradient is more pleasing to my eye.

BTW, what the heck happened to your avatar? Looks like your brain is exploding in the new one. :eek:
