Up close and artful

macro-2

Plenty of signs of spring on my walk by the river yesterday.  The subject for Photo Art Friday is macro so I zoomed in and then cropped them even closer back on my computer.

I love the red on the new growth and buds.

macro-3

In each case I duplicated the image and then went through the blending modes for one that I liked.

Such hopeful signs of Spring! I especially like the pinky red buds - bet they'll be unfurling in the next week ...

Yes, the red buds are beautiful Helena. We have a few trees in leaf here but I love them at the tightly closed bud stage.

Love your use of negative space in the second and third images Helena. It really makes the red buds pop. Thank you for sharing your photo art with PAF!

How pretty. Your 2nd shot of the red buds is really nice but I think that last one is even nicer.
