The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Muse

Here is my entry for The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge with the topic of Muse.  They want us to answer this question:  what subject do you turn to frequently, more inspired each time?  If you follow my blog at all, I think you will know my answer.  Here are a few of my all time favorite flower photos I have taken.  Sorry if you have seen them before.

  1. I don’t think this came as a surprise to any of us 😉 But never the less flowers are beautiful so I can easely understand you. You take lovely photos of flowers and so are these wether we seen them before or not.


  2. I was shouting flowers at the screen from the second I saw your name, Cee 🙂 That yellow dahlia is incredible, and have you used a watercolour effect on the first one? It’s lovely.


    1. No effects were used. Unless otherwise stated my flowers photos usually just have a little vibrance, light balance and sharpening. That’s it. And of course cropping.


  3. Well we all know your flower photos are absolutely the most awesome ever so admit to not being surprised to see you confirm flowers as your muse; yet I certainly enjoyed them just as much as all of the others. Great job; keep feeding your muse and by extension us your readers 🙂


  4. Do I have to say it again? I hate flower photos! But those first two are just awe inspiring. Whatever you did in the processing really makes them stand out high and above the rest!


    1. I didn’t do anything special in the processing. Basic stuff. The lotus had a real dark shadow behind it so it was easy to dark it to black with the rest being so bright.


  5. A lovely variety Dahlias Cee … all jumping off the screen ! I too guessed like many others it would *Flowers*
    Have a great Weekend !
