So kind of you, thank you, Nikita. I appreciate your visit.

It really looks like metallic craft.
Very effective effect ! 🙂

Thank you, Yoshi-sensei. I’m so pleased you like it. The sunlight was hitting this dead flower in just the right way.

Oh how gorgeous…..like a bit of antique jewelry.

Thank you, Pam. I love it when I come across such “jewels” on my walks. The sunlight reflecting off this flower really caught my eye.

This really looks like a goldsmith work! How delicate!
July 31, 2013 at 8:40 pm
Yes, it does look like metal, doesn’t it. The sunlight was highlighting this flower in such a fascinating way.

Such a lovely sepia tone you’ve developed here–it looks like burnished bronze.

Thank you, Gary. I figured out a combination of filters in Lightroom that worked just right with the sunlight hitting this flower. I’m glad you like it.

Petals into gold….you’re an alchemist I think 🙂

Such a nice comment, Seonaid. Thank you.
The center looks like flower leftovers, but the striped petals look man made. And then it all looks golden.

Hi, Allen. Shoot, I was hoping you might know what this flower was. It IS a real flower (well, except that it’s dead now.) 🙂
August 1, 2013 at 1:43 am
I wish I could, but I don’t recognize it.
August 1, 2013 at 10:20 am
It’s made of metallic ribbon. I think. Interesting image. I like.
August 1, 2013 at 12:31 am
I can see why metallic ribbon comes to mind, but it is actually a real dead flower. 🙂 I’m so glad you like it.
August 1, 2013 at 1:42 am
Real? Really! I would never have guessed. What an image, Lemony! You get the Granny Pulitzer for this one.
August 1, 2013 at 1:56 am
😀 Hooray! Thank you, George. The sunlight was just perfect, and that’s what made the shot (well, and the combination of filters I used in Lightroom.)
I was hoping that Allen (New Hampshire Gardner) might recognize it, but he, too, thought it was metal.)

Woops, I meant filters in Lightroom AND Color Efex…
August 1, 2013 at 2:28 am
Lovely. It’s also looking at me….those eyes 🙂
August 1, 2013 at 11:37 am
🙂 Yes, the eyes are interesting to me, too. Thanks, Sarah.

Stunning!!!! I can’t seem to post on the actual pic as apparently I need something called Grava…?
August 1, 2013 at 1:00 pm
Thanks, Peeks. Your comment came through just fine. I’m glad you like this image.
August 3, 2013 at 6:43 pm
Beautiful, romantic, nostalgic shot – love the beseeching “eyes”. Sad, yet resigned and full of pomp. If you’re going to go, go gold.
August 1, 2013 at 8:04 pm
Ha ha–yes, go gold. 🙂 I love your description of this image. Thanks, Richard.
Gorgeous! Love the sepis tones 🙂
August 1, 2013 at 9:56 pm
Thank you, Inga. I’m grateful for your feedback.
and of course it should have said sepia tones. But I guess you understood that. 😉
August 4, 2013 at 12:40 pm
Excellent composition. Congrats on winning the Granny Pulitzer. 🙂
August 3, 2013 at 7:14 pm
That’s amazing, Melanie! Like a piece of exquisite jewelry.
August 3, 2013 at 8:15 pm
Thank you, Karen! I’m so glad you like it.
August 4, 2013 at 11:51 am
Oh, this is lovely. Such wonderful light.
August 3, 2013 at 9:15 pm
Very nice, more striking “antiquing” than a simple sepia.
August 5, 2013 at 2:07 pm
Thank you, Scott. Yes, there is a little bit of “extra” here. 🙂
