Hi

looks like one in a row of attempts to find a certain result, unsteady, uncertain about what to do ... maybe colors would be more convincing.

No the color art I did is original Wolfgang. The trouble was with the image hosting. The last larger work I found a better image hosting site. No other problems.

This image is quite different as the ones you use to show.

In this one I do like the soft and gentle light and the gradients on the flower itself.

There is openness and secracy in the same time. Mystère !

Cool!

So, I am both intrigued and challenged, as I can see there's a lot to read, but it's in in a language I do not follow well, but one I can respect, move to and adore as an outsider, looking in. But I do not have to speak all languages to value and treasure riches I come across! So there is no need for this or other art to obey rules, just to resonate.......... and that, it does!

Thank you! This is not one of my overlays. it is instead a vase of light pink tulips I received as a birthday gift last Sunday. Such a sweet delicate flower. I am one to not listen to what is expected in such a photograph ,,instead i am my own expressionist much like you- I have no need to be anyone but me in what I make. Nicolas you have got it right... flowers do have an open secrets to them as I feel the same thing...so voila !

Has a "photojournalist of old " look to me. I bet the original image with pink flowers is appealing. It looks like Photobucket is about to close down completely their site that offers free hosting and put up another where all account levels will be charged.

Exactly!
That is why I wrote recently somewhere in OPF that an image cannot be appreciated at the same level by every one.
We can only share and expect to please some. Even with no hope that the pleasing comes from the same reason than ours…
:)


BTW As you know I'm working on the power of black(s) "color" nowadays (nothing related to B&W), hence your image was perfectly on time!
I love it:)

Thanks for coming by and your input! Everyone here knows of my vintage love and you are so right I have put my vintage love into the flower. I never do much in color unless there is shadow and shading etc. Just me.
