The contrast of the barn red and the trees and foliage green was striking in this scene. I must go back and shoot more of this red barn. (Post processing on the iPad with Photogene, a new photo editing app I’m trying out – Kind of slow, but lots of power built into it.)

After some diversions in various directions, it’s back to spring flowers. It had been my intention to do this in black-and-white, but as I started post processing, I decided the color effects were much too nice – warm, sensual, comforting and yet provocative. (Click image for larger.)

Red Dahlia – New Series

This explosion of red is a giant Dahlia shot outdoors in bright sunlight. All Dahlia’s are dramatic, the drama here is heightened by the treatment in post. These New Series images seek to create more stylized and expressive florals through editing in Photoshop.

Dahlias 5

The yellow converts an otherwise plain image (if any image of dahlias can be said to be plain) into something very striking.

Vintage Rose

The title is probably a misnomer. The rose isn’t vintage. But here’s another effort to produce an image that emulates a vintage film look. The rose was shot today. The roses are wilting in the southern California heat, but here and there a lovely bright one jumps out at you.

I wish I’d noted the name of these spectacular multicolor roses. Any rose fans venture a guess? With thanks to Saffronrose, I think it’s a rose called “Oranges and Lemons.” ┬áSee *.

The dahlia is the king of summer flowers. It’s remarkable that dahlias continue to be stunning – perhaps even more interesting – even as they begin to wilt. (Click for larger.)
