Welcome to my Private Journal

Welcome to my Private Journal
I have decided to keep this private because there are some people stealing photos &
 ideas, which, I don't mind people using my photos, but would like to know in
 advance & maybe a link back to my Journal(or in this case, my other journal)
I have been working on photos which I hope to enter in shows & would love honest
 feedback.  I invited only those who have left comments on my UK journal on the past 10 entries.



I think this might be my favorite. Each rose I either adjusted the saturation &/or used
the defused filter.  I also made some adustments with the levels & curves.

Marie,

First of all, I want to thank you for including me. I love viewing your images and am happy to be included in this journal's invitation list.

Ok...comments on this image: I totally agree with your choice. In looking a the different versions, I think that some are too blown out on the highlights end, some are set at the wrong temperature (the last one is a bit too warm), some are just too desaturated...you picked the best of the bunch. At least in my opinion.

On the left side column, the third down is my favorite.   Your pick---- the background is different than on left column number one.   I would have to say I like equally the one that I picked and your pick.    Thank you for including me in your private journal and I will look forward to more defineing looks at your photography.   mark

Hi.  Thanks for the invite.  Love your photos.  I like the one at top right the most, with the whiter background.  : )  GBU, Shelly

Thanks for inviting me Marie. I think I go along with your choice, it's very delicate and pretty! The other small flowers in front of the rose add the finishing touch, are they gypsophilla? I've never seen your photos on other journals apart from ones that you gave Donna to animate. Jeannette.

Thanks for inviting me along, too.  I always enjoy your photos so much.  These roses are great, and I'm hard pressed to choose a favorite - but - the lower right, the one somebody said is too warm is very appealing to me.   antique look.  i also like the first and second ones.  Oh, my, I'm a Gemini,  I can't choose!   =)   Phin

I love this one too because it is sort of Victorian Gothic looking.

Thanks For The Invite.

Marie - Thank you - I like all the variations!
I see these lovely rose images as a "card set." _rRose

Thanks for the invitation and sorry to hear of the need to go private.
I agree with Mark, I like the bottom left image. The background is cooler, sets off the edges on the petals and still maintains that hint of color but not as stronglyas in your choice.

Thanks for the invitation, it's great that you thought of me.  I enjoy the way you showed all of the variations.  It gives one a sense of the process, which is interesting, too.

Hope all is well. This set of the pale roses has always been my favorite.
Why not give Flickr a try? It's a really useful site I think you'll like.
