Our prompts this week made me have to do some thinking. They were a little tougher and abstract. I'm glad we're free to interpret the prompts anyway we want, because I stretched a couple of these!!
The prompts were:
In the original photo this leaf really does SHINE. It is green with touches of red. I converted it to black and white, upped the contrast a little, and added a little HDRish. It doesn't look real, it looks silver-plated and boy does it SHINE now!
It always amazes me how FAST the sun sinks below the horizon. Do you see the little black dot in the sky on the left side? That's a bat that was too FAST for me to capture clearly!
This one really challenged me. All I could think about was my left hand or turn left! Then, I found this feather that was LEFT behind.
I visited the Little Rock National Cemetery this week. It was established in 1868. To know that I've lived here most of my life and have never been there is very sad! I love how photography has led me to many new places! As I walked around I felt the PEACE in this quiet place. I also felt overwhelmed and grateful for the sacrifice that has been made for our freedom.
Next to the National Cemetery is the beautiful, historic Oakland Cemetery that was established in 1863. So many of the monuments and mausoleums were ornate with carvings. This monument, though simple and PLAIN, was just as beautiful.
I'm posted two for PLAIN. I really like them both! As I strolled around Oakland Cemetery, I realized how many Magnolia Trees there were. Most of them had already bloomed, but I did see this one bloom not yet opened. Fascinating isn't it that this PLAIN bloom creates such a gorgeous blossom!
Looking forward to this coming week's prompts.
Happy Hunting everyone!
