One Word Sunday: Literal

A definition of literal can be ‘accurate, faithful, true, genuine’….

So I give you a literal view of  a magnolia:

…..and because we all know the camera can be made to lie, this is the same magnolia against a blue sky, as a far from literal rendition, by way of contrast:

  1. Gorgeous. I could imagine dress material in those colours.

  2. Both of them absolutely gorgeous, Sue! A combo on the wall – !

  3. Love this, Sue – both versions.

  4. Great choice Sue. I love the abstract, and giving this strong congrast was a brilliant idea

  5. I think the water droplets really enhance that one, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. Jackie

    I agree with everyone, those colours are amazing.

  7. How DID you do that? It’s a gorgeous abstract.

    • Sue

      Teehee! Swung the camera about on a slow shutter speed….would have to go look at the original metadata to tell you more, Jude

      • That’s VERY clever Sue. I have done that with trees, but never thought to try with flowers.

      • Sue

        Well I’ve always wanted to do it with trees, but only did once, and not very good. Oh, and I’m pretty sure that was a 1 second exposure, so I had to use an ND filter as it was a bright sunny day

  8. I love the abstract version especially. Interesting how you did it, Sue. 🙂

  9. Great idea, Sue, and beautifully executed.

  10. I really like the second photo a lot, lovely colors, Sue

  11. Now there’s a conundrum! Do I prefer yours or Ann Christine’s magnolia? 🙂 🙂 Good thing there’s space in this world for all.

  12. Absolutely lovely abstract Sue!
