Thursday, August 21, 2014  "CURCUMAS" (aka "Curcumas Hybrids")  Sadly, for money, many have sold their soul. "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" ~ Matthew 16:26 (The Bible, KJV)  SOOC; uncropped; 35mm lens; flash fired  "Sometimes generically called "hidden lilies" because these tropical herbaceous plants go dormant during the winter dry season, curcuma actually refers to any of about 40 species of tropical plants. Members of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae, the flowers appear hidden among the leaves and stems during the rainy summer season." ~ Reprinted text from here: http://www.ehow.com/about_6312066_curcuma-plant-information.html  Thank you for your comments on yesterday's "True Colors" photo of the profusion zinnias. It was the #3 photo of the day. Terry Allen's photo was #1 and Gene's (aka Hyderphoto) photo was #2.  Hang in there; tomorrow is Friday!

@ Portsmouth Harbour  My boyfriend was in a meeting and I had to walk around for a few hours.  They have now asked me if I've got any good pics for their office.  So I have kinned this one up to look retro.
08-21-2014 "Lines in Black and White"  Saw this and thought it would make a nice black and white.  I had planned to work on more black and white photos this year but just haven't done it.  I graciously appreciate your comments on my bougainvillea yesterday as well as any of my photos you take the time to view. Donna

September 23, 2007    Fog in the forest.
2-02: This is another from Saturday's sunset. Several people have asked if the colors are real (natural) in yesterday's. It was taken as three bracketed exposures but only at -1, 0 and 1. Then combined in Photomatix. Then final processing in Capture NX2 (mostly brightness and focus adjustments) I didn't change any colors. I did actually have to desaturate a little because the orange and reds tend to be over saturated sometimes. I used the same processing on today's post. This one was actually taken a few minutes before the one I posted yesterday, so the clouds are more orange than red or pink
