Lens Artists Challenge #237: Bringing Softness

Another chance this week to get creative with the lens artist challenge – bringing softness.

Pink always looks good with a bit of softness.


Of course bees bring softness anyway – but I added a little bit more for fun.

I thought this butterfly would work in colour but didn’t look right so changed to sepia.


This one, the softening changes the background to a lovely soft green.


And finally a landscape.

Manny thanks to Bren for the challenge.

Lens Artists Challenge #235: Shadows and Reflections in Monochrome

This week, Patti challenges us to find monochrome images that feature shadows and reflections. I do enjoy monochrome and should use it more often. So a big thank you to Patti for encouraging me to find my creative vibe this week.
