Fun with Hue

FOTD 7bFOTD 8bI would never submit these images to Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge (aka FOTD.) I do enjoy toying with the “hue” of many of the flowers that I photograph using Photoshop Elements. Blossoms that have a colored center and white petals are especially alluring. Sometimes I’ll go in and do wacky things to individual petals using the “magic wand,” and other tools. In a lot of ways, it’s like creating your own personal alternate reality. I hope that you enjoy my vision.Sexy Susan.jpgThis was at first just a run of the mill daisy. Now each petal competes with the next for attention and they all compete with the center! (Please excuse all the technical jargon.)

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
