Re: Lilies

Hey Grace , I'm just suggesting here , but to me while the flowers are nice and all --the bg just isn't working for me at least ) and it appears as if the flowers rise up out of no where , is there a set composition to this it has no balance , flowers just don't rise up out of thin air , is this done from real life ?

Re: Lilies

I agree that the flower is not grounded, since it's not in a natural environment. I'm not sure what I think about the flower to the left, disappearing out of the picture to such a degree. The part we see looks a little like a light ray instead of a flower, so that's a little confusing to me.

The crisp whiteness of the flowers is very attractive! The two flowers to the right seem to have some movement around them?

Re: Lilies

This composition kinda came out of my imagination. The "light ray" flower was suppose to lead the eye in to the focal flower. Thanks for stopping and commenting/compliment.

Oh, I love it! Wonderful colors and so vibrant, and the flowers are much better now, IMHO.

Re: Rework Of Lily Blooms

I originally did, but I think what happened is it went overlooked because I couldn't change the original title to let it be known about a rework.
