Daily Photo ~ 7-25-11

This One’s for You, Mickie
Thanks for all of your kind comments. 
I really did go right out, moved the hibiscus, and shot the shadow.

For my hibiscus I used Vintage Frame 12 from The CoffeeShop Blog and “frosted” from Kim Klassen.

    Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.

    Have a fantastic day!


  5. Really terrific photo here.... :)

  6. This is such a pretty hibiscus shot, with a perfect shadow of the stamen (is that what it's called?). This flower is called gumamela in the Philippines, and for some reason I like the sound of that name. I also fell in love with gumamelas last year (this year it was tulips in Europe). I like your frame on your hibiscus too.

  7. Beautiful. I just love the soft peachy color -- my favorite. All of you great professional photographers (maybe you aren't, but you should be) make me drool with envy -- but I am too lazy to try harder. Thanks for sharing your talent!

  8. Beautiful hibiskus.

  9. soft and ever so delightful..

  10. gorgeosu color on one of my favorite flowers. :)

  11. So gorgeous and soft. Was looking for a shadow of the bloom...glad I found it, thanks to one of your fans!
