Favorite Photo Friday

Roses - pink 020

What with all the work lately (and playing around with fancy equipment), I just took a few shots of some roses the other day.

With my trusty Nikon D300....which I still love....even though I had a quick and steamy affair with the D4!!

And what with the mound of editing still in front of me, to save some time I thought I'd try out some Florabella actions on these roses. I used the Luxe, soft pink and from the Classic Collection, the soft haze. 

A bit of a departure from my usual "in your face already" style but I like it!

Do visit Lisa's blog and check out some amazing photography. Just oogle or join in - always a great way to learn.

This will be the first Saturday in awhile that I'm not working so the family is hitting the yard and garden. My flowers are now shouting at me...."hey...remember us?". So this week-end I will.

Happy Week-end!

I love soft edits! I would say I pick that 9 out of 10 times. I have never used actions, but if I was going to, I would like these ones for sure! Love your pretty flowers. I remember that you are a flower lover.
I laughed about your affair. I am glad it was short lived. Wishing you the happiest weekend with your flowers and your family. Love to you Wanda!

The first one is incredible and I love the perspective!!!

After seeing what you shot with the D4 on fb, I can tell the affair was amazing!!

Enjoy your weekend
and hugs to you,

Dreamy! Such detail - I can feel and smell them ... almost!

These are awesome! I'm a huge Florabella fan. I use the actions mostly on my portraits, not my everday snapshots of my kiddos. But I definitely need to take more pictures of nature! I don't have flowers in my yard, I would only kill them!
