Saturday Sketches #12

Once again I am going to fill in the dreary winter months by posting some photos that have been taken on my phone and edited with some of the different photo editing effects. Hence Saturday Sketches!

During the winter months my garden is not very exciting (and usually too wet to go out and find anything to photograph anyway) so I am taking a break from the Six on Saturday meme until the new year.

Pink Orchid with reflections and a ‘Dawn’ effect

    I think that orchid would be beautiful in its own right, but nice to play sometimes. Happy Saturday, Jude!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Not so much play on this one as the reflections caused most of the weirdness, the Dawn effect simply added some pink to the background.

    What a good idea. That’s a pretty photo.

    1. Heyjude says:

      They were in a beautiful orangery so I could only photograph through the window which created all sorts of reflections.

    Hmmm Saturday Sketches you say…..that could catch on. Just like Monday Portraits, no hosts or has to moderate, no links….could be fun 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      True. I like memes where there is no obligation or fuss. I used to do Macro Mondays on my flower blog, but after 100 I took a break.

  8. It’s s great photo – the effect turns it into a sumptuous watercolour.
