One Four Challenge: July. Week One. Dead Flowers

Dead Flowers. Week One
Dead Flowers. Week One

This is week one.

It’s been years since I returned to trying my life at still life.

I dried out these roses, and shot them using a table lamp. I used a 60 mm macro lens.

For those who are interested in the steps that I took to edit this picture, I am attaching the screen shot below

  1. ‘And you can send me dead flowers every morning
    Send me dead flowers by the mail
    Send me dead flowers to my wedding
    And I won’t forget to put roses on your grave’
    sorry, just made me think of the Stones ‘Dead flowers’ 🙂

  2. Oh yes, this is beautiful Raj – such a wonderful mood and subject! I use the 60mm too. It’s a beautiful lens.
    Lovely result and I love that you dried them yourself 😀 Nice work!

  3. An interesting image for this challenge. The colours are nice but I find them quite contrasted with the dead flowers yet it works with the vase and wall. I think I might need to spend more time looking at the picture.
