T-13 Window Views - Pink Roses

Make Time for Small Reflections

Thirteen window views
of pink roses from my yard
in 4 mosaics ...

I like each collage
for a different reason
and am curious

which you might prefer ...
suspecting most will agree
'natural' is best

yet the monochromes
definitely generate
added interest

for without color
other details capture my
total attention

Collaged straight out of the camera ...

... mosaic filtered with Poster Edges

then Black & White - Urban Landscape

and finally, B&W - Poster Edges

13 Mosaics
of 13 Sky Views from my

Beautiful roses, and all the variations are fascinating. I just love to pull photos in and edit and twist them to see what else happens.

The roses are beautiful, and the second collage is my favorite.

Debbie@Like a Rose said...

Beautiful roses no matter which way you look at them. I probably prefer the first one though - I'm a natural kinda gal.

Hootin' Anni said...

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, gorgeous!! Around here, it's been so hot and no moisture, our roses are suffering. A lot!!!

Happy Friday to you.

Joyce said...

It's hard to pick a favorite since they all have their own great qualities! Well done!
