    • Japanese anemone? (Thinking Cowgirl IDd it). I like them, too. They’re plentiful in gardens here in PA.

  4. I think what makes this picture charming is,
    it doesn’t looks realistic at all = even if this
    was a painting, it looks totally imaginary creation.
    I haven’t figured out why yet though.

    • I see what you mean about it not looking realistic. Actually I did very little processing to this image. The combination of intense colors (natural from the garden) adds to the imaginary feel of the image. These flowers are called Japanese anemone, and they are very popular in gardens around here and are in full blossom at the moment.

      • Of course I know the flower.
        They are pretty common here as well but
        normally the stems are more straight and we
        normally see them from the side. — but it’s not the point
        * may be the vision from the TOP and the image was,
        as if it was flattened (with pan-focus effect)
        * and somewhat strange saturation of color = giving an
        impression of, as if this is a printed pattern on the cushion.

  5. I like this one. Almost looks like a scene from Avatar.

    • Thank you, Sarah, for the nice words, and for the ID! I always need help with that. I love these flowers. They’re in full blossom here at this time of year and add such a wonderful detail to gardens in the neighborhood.

        Thanks Melanie…Believe it or not, I only discovered the reader page about a week ago…It makes it so much easier to keep up with things..
        I know….I’m a total technophobe…

  10. Wow, Melanie, those colours are something else – did you tweak them?

    • Hi, Richard. I did slightly (ever so slightly) boost the color here. The light just happened to be perfect that afternoon. I think what added to this image was the vignette I applied, which further enhances the featured flower.
