Purple Hyacinths

Purple Hyacinths

I knew when I was shooting this hyacinth that I wanted to create an image with a painterly feel.
So I shot it with a soft focus, but then added a Gaussian blur and increased the purple hues.

What do you think?

  3. I love your creativity! I never would have thought of doing a soft focus on anything. It makes the piece very abstract.

  7. It is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!! The color is so soft and just brings out the softness of the flower even more. Smart thinking on taking a soft focus shot to begin with. I must not know how to do the blur thing real well because mine don't seem to work like that.

  8. Hi Katie,

    Interesting special effect. I just got back from the Baltimore Inner Harbor. Took lots of photos I'll be posting starting today and throughout the rest of the week. Enjoy!

    Blessings,
