I've been practicing on flowers... do you prefer textured or not textured?

I like them both too. But I really like how the textured one looks vintage/antique/old.

Mandy said...

I like them both, beautiful!

Your practicing on textures & different layers has me interested in it now!

So inspiring!

the first one takes my breath away. i love both the regular and texture equally.. no way to choose!

for the second one, i prefer the non textured....

Oooh, gorgeous. I love them both but am particularly enjoying the textured effect. Where are you playing to create that?

and just an aside, I have been enjoying your playlist to. Listen to it for a number of hours a couple of nights ago and now I notice it has changed :) Thanks for broadening my music knowledge!

OH! *Absolutely* NON-textured!! The clarity of those photos and the colors of those gorgeous flowers are too beautiful to add any effect except for the perfect blur editing you did :)

Erin,

The pictures are gorgeous! I love them both - so bright & vivid without texture, but that sweet, vintage look to the textured is beautiful too. Tough choice!

~love said...

i, too, like them both on different days! today--not textured.

=)

I love the crispness of the not textured, but I think the textured would look nice in a frame.

take care,
Lisa

I like both. I love the bright color and the crispness of the non-textured, but I also love the vintage look of the textured.

I kind of like the roses textured, but the textured ones seems sort of like decorated paper to me . . . like they are waiting for text. The non-textured has great such depth to them that the textured ones just don’t have. On the roses the yellows and pinks pop more, but on the last one it seems more flat. But in a way, Victorian. I guess that was way more than you were asking.

Chelle said...

I am loving the pictures...so gorgeous.

I love the non-textured ones, personally :)

Liv said...

O.M.G. I *love* your blog and your shop. Just discovered you today and I'm smitten!

Inksstillwet said...

These are gorgeous! I love the non textured ones the most. But they’re all beautiful!!

Chappyswife said...

Non, but both are lovely!

Celeste said...

Wow! I'm really do like both. But, I'm just lovin' how the texturized pics look almost like watercolor paintings!

Amy @ Living Locurto said...

Gorgeous! I like them both, but if I had to choose, I'd say no texture.

Katie said...

Beautiful photos! I really enjoy the top one textured but the second natural. Gorgeous detail and such lovely subjects to photograph.

Linda @ My Trendy Tykes said...

Using that Macro??

I like the textured look. I could totally see those hanging on my wall.

Megan of Sanourra Designs said...

Beautiful pictures! I like the softer look of the textured flowers.

Zelda said...

Textured if you plan to use it for a wall hanging. Great either way!
