I have lost the fluffy, the soft, all I want to do at the moment is the strong and crisp, but with a little fluffy…..

I did some backlighting but I strayed toward the dramatic rather than the soft. I think it’s the flowers  I don’t think they are good subjects for fluffy the peonies are over and everything is a bit megh ….

  3. I’m with you on the soft thing…I’ve been pulling out dark and crisp every time I’ve gone to big girl camera lately. It’s that super dramatic high contrast lighting that is making my heart sing too when I see it on the back of the camera. Lovely images all around and I’m glad you made the leap to WP. How do you like it so far?

  5. Sometimes bolder treatments are better than softer feels. I really like your selections and that first capture/texture treatment. And I really love the quote you’ve featured.
