White Tulip in Front Garden
Today I am participating in Friday Finds hosted by Kimklassen.com where photographers link their finds for the week. The pictures can be of anything that you consider a "find" for the week. Something inspiring, beautiful, unique or you just plain like it. I am going with the beautiful for this week. This photo is appealing to me because of the simple colors and the glow of the white against the green. Perhaps the green leaf going through the center of the flower would bother other photographers/artists, but for me, I like the contrast that the leave adds to the flower. The texture is simple and it cuts out some of the clutter from the background. Usually I add a mask to the texture and "paint" the flower back in for the blossom to have no texture. However, once I started the painting process, I realized that I liked the effect on the flower.
Now if we only had some sun today for more photos like this, I would be outside right now!
