Antiqued Paperwhite

 

paperwhites with antique deskpadpdpa

I went back into the archives to a time when I took strictly jpegs and I even think it was taken with my Lumix camera that is only 5px.  It had a lot of noise in the photo but thanks to Topaz Labs denoise program I got rid of a lot of it. It was further cleaned up in Photoshop.  I used a texture of Bonnie’s called Antique Deskpad over the top.

I am not sure this qualifies for this week’s theme of minimal by here it is.

Joining Photo Friday with Bonnie at PixelDust Photo Art.  Have a great weekend.

Wow - a really stunning piece of artwork, Valerie!! What great choices you made in the processing of it. Love what you did with that texture - you've inspired me to pull it out and use it more.

A beautiful image further enhanced by some lovely processing. Bery artisitic.

Your photo is beautifully tranquil. You did a wonderful job of cleaning up the noise and used it to your advantage. Great job!

I think this is a sublime minimalist photograph. And the texture is the perfect touch to soften and tone your paperwhite. I appears you have turned your photo sideways, which is very effective...It has the appearance of being placed on a highly polished surface. Ah, intrigue. smiles: sharon

minimalist is, like all BEauty, in the eye of the BEholder. I think this is just so very lovely, Valerie. it feels ancient yet within reach.

A great edit there, I love those narcissus, such a strong scent for a small flower :)

Valerie, this is absolutely gorgeous!
I love the simplicity, and your edit is wonderful.

I actually just started (inside) my paper whites today, so with any luck, in a few weeks they will be camera material!

Happy Sunday to you!
Hi Valerie... you did a great job on this photo. Very eye-catching! xox

Really do like this one, Val. You did a great job recovering it - I wouldn't have known about the noise. Such sweet flowers, too.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
