98. Four

I am not really sure what these are, but I loved the way the sun light brought out the reds and yellows in these pods!

  2. Beautiful capture Tammy!!

  3. seems to me as if it were pussy willow, well done picture, great shot!

  4. Really nice Tammy. What’s the white background?

    • I actually shot it looking up and the background is a white cloud. To make it even whiter I…
      1. lightened the entire image by using levels
      2. made a copy on the layer above it and used the screen blend mode and adjusted the opacity to my liking
      3. enhanced the colors yellow and red by upping the saturation a bit.
      4. And finally did one more levels adj.

  5. So delicate. . .lovely photo.

  6. Really interesting plant. I have no idea what it is either.

  7. I love the way you isolated that against the sky and glad you gave the steps in your reply to Bill. Very nice!

  8. Even in Nebraska it would seem that Smelly season is reaching full steam.

  9. Tammy, these are pussy willows. Mine are at the same stage now.

  18. Hi Tammy,
    They are pretty, but can’t help you on what they are. Have a great day!


  19. Delicious details in your photo…you processed it wonderfully too.

  20. I love ’em, remind me of a cartoon character with a bushy hairstyle (for the life of me , can’t remember the name).

  21. There’s a Japanese feel to your shot, Tammy, with the cleanliness of it balanced with delicacy.
