Day 86 - Birthday Blooms

As I mentioned in yesterday's blog, we had a birthday supper with our godchildren and their parents last night. To celebrate the occasion, they brought flowers for Peg. They were very special flowers because 'E' picked them out. Although his mother tried to convince him otherwise, he insisted that they get blue ones. Along with the bright blue flowers were beautiful gerbers, roses and astromeria. I snapped this pic this afternoon. I like the contrast between the orange and the blue. I tried playing with some presets but I wasn't patient enough to create something I liked. Guess it'll have to wait until next time.

Beautiful contrasting colors and I love the perspective!

So pretty! I love the way you have the blue out of focus. Obviously present, but just a light background that accentuates the orange.

The blue makes the orange pop. I like the composition.

I also love the contrast of colors. Beautiful shot! The center of the orange flower almost looks like it's looking at the viewer. Nice work!
