Day 115 – Orchids

My absolute favorite flower is a rose, specifically white roses. They are the ones I send or give for special occasions, to special people. My bridal bouquet was made of them along with purple orchids, which happen to be my second favorite flower. I have been given them as gifts, bought them myself, and no matter what instructions or suggestions given I have never been successful at keeping them alive. I decided to play with this photo, instead of boosting it I de-saturated it and like how the purple turned more purply instead of the original pinkish purple.

      Thank you, mostly I just do SOOC but occasionally I will play around. Someday I am so going to learn PS and LR that I have so I can really explore editing more.

        I don’t have PS or LR but would love to learn them one day, I just use really basic editing programs and keep my fingers crossed πŸ˜‰

        Your edits are excellent, I only use my Mac which is super basic. Bought the softwares early on but learning it on my own wasn’t working, really need to take a class but never time and fairly costly. Someday πŸ™‚

    Do you have an iPad ? I do some editing on mine as I downloaded Photoshop Express for free and really like it, then I upload the pic back to my MacBook and post, great App πŸ™‚
