24. Macro Monday: Pastel

I used my lensbaby w/ the soft focus lens and macro attatchment to capture my mom’s beautiful orchid bloom.  I really liked how it softened the colors and the image as a whole.

  20. I am in awe. I have no idea how you precessed this photo

  21. Beautiful Tammy…love the softness of the textures. Although the highlights seem to take away from that softness. Hope you don’t mind the critique?

    • I appreciate the feedback always Mike…I value your opinions! Honestly, to get the soft colors I wanted I had to blow out the exposure, and the highlights bugged me a bit too…but, this was the best of the crop! 🙂

  22. very nice soft shot.

  23. I like the highlights blown, on a white background this would be even more ethereal. Glad you are finding time to play with your Lensbaby.

  24. Love how it’s just suffused with light!

  25. Very beautiful and very creative, Tammy.

  26. Nice and soft. Pretty colors.

  27. Gorgeous, Tammy! VERY well done. Now it needs a nice wrap mount and a place of honor to hang.

  28. Oh that’s NICE! I love orchids! Aren’t they just little pieces of heaven?

  29. Looks as though the flower is floating inside a bubble. lovely!

  30. This is so beautiful! I’m still hoping that my orchid will bloon one day. Love this.
