Posted by Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 13 January 2010 in Plant & Nature.
This is the first winter I've forced bulbs. It was as much fun watching the plant grow as seeing the lovely little flowers that perfume the room.
I brought out detail in Topaz Adjust, then applied Texture 023 by SophieG from Flickr group Textures for Layers.

Beautiful image, Anita. On a gray day, with little snow to brighten things up, this is certainly a treat. Once again, I love your use of texture.

These narcissus are sunny beauties. So glad you made your own bulbs grow. I really enjoy the very light, highly exposed effect !!

The presentation is as magical as the flowers themselves . . the softness suits them so well.

Hi Anita. I like this image especially because of the subject, composition and warm tones you added. If I may have some suggestions on improvements - I think that the "grungy" texture near to right border is too prominent - there is some texture like rust which draws my eyes. Second thing is related to quite strong yellow overlay which overlays the leftmost blossom and makes its petals look like drying/fading. Have you tried also other adjustments? These flowers are really soft and I think that a soft treatment would suit them very well. Besides this it is very nice image!

@Tomas Turecek: As always, I appreciate your suggestions. I think they are worth trying. I saved the layers, so I can go back and make adjustments.

@Souptik Biswas: Souptik: If you send me your email address I can respond to you. Thanks for visiting.
Very lovely colortones and composition, though the "thingies"next to the right border, I know it is due to the texture but it's a little bit disturbing for the eyes, wonderful picture though!

@Monique: Thank you for your comment. You are right about the texture on the right--I think I will tone it down before having this image printed. I appreciate your input.
they're glowing! very cool effect ...

A stunner, Anita! Where was this last week when we had "texture week" in OOTB/BPN? It would have really inspired others!
