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.

      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.

        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!
