Edited to Add: If you are visiting from Donna's Photo Challenge, just read the pink words as I've decided to use this post so I don't break my own rules. Welcome! ☺
Kalanchoe: Just playing with perspectives and angles. Have long forgotten what the camera settings were on.
This photo of the azalea blooms in my front yard was taken on macro setting, overcast day, +0 lighting balance, ISO 400, F2. Later, in Photoscape, I added effects on the water drops at the top left of the photo using the deepen brush. I thought that brighten would work best, but I was surprised to find that I preferred the deepen brush option. And that, my friends, is all I know. Enjoy the party in progress *here!*
Trying different camera angles. John brought home the yellow Kalanchoe yesterday. It's an annual, a succulent that doesn't need a lot of attention.
It rained gently through the night and this morning there is still a fine mist in the air. The azalea is ever so much more happy as a result. However, I note with sadness that the small azalea at the front of the garden looking like a pile of dead leaves is hanging on by a thread. I will try to find a better home for it...perhaps pot it for the summer and baby it along. My daughter gave it to me and so I'm very attached to it. It may be for the best as it has been crowding the roses or vice versa.
Since next week is Note Card Party week with Mr. Linky going up in the afternoon on Tuesday, Wednesday being left open for the actual full day of the party, and Thursday another post, I'm going to post this Sunday. I've had something planned since I found it a year ago. Ha! Anyway, there'll be no comments then.
Oh, if anyone had trouble with the "optical illusion," I'll send you the answer behind the scenes. It's way too scary to post here. ☺
A lovely day to you...
