Ruby Tuesday



Hi everyone welcome to Ruby Tuesday! What you see below is my first attempt at working with textures.

Photobucket

This is tiger lily that I took and manipulated with textures and then used the duo-tone filter on Photobucket.

I think I like it. Do you? I'd appreciate some feedback... :)

If you sign Mr. Linky and leave a comment you'll go into a giveaway of a free 4x6 photographic print of this ruby photo in its own photo sleeve and envelope...

At 5:00 PM on Tuesday I'll spin around and point to a name in the Linky list and you''ll be the winner!

** Don't worry if you didn't sign Mr. Linky because I failed to post it, you'll still be considered for the giveaway!!

BTW, It's my 100th post for Ruby Tuesday! Thanks Elaine!


**The winner of the Ruby Tuesday Giveaway is first time poster Gee. Welcome Gee! Send me your home address in my e-mail: indexer@aol.com and I'll send you the tiger lily in RED that you see above.
Thank you everyone for participating!

Great picture, and I so appreciate the ways you find to teach about photography, while we're having fun.

Dave said...

lovely subject.

Lesa said...

I think it is stunning and should be hanging on someone's wall!

Carletta said...

For me it has a dreamlike look Mary. I clicked to enlarge it to see the texture better and saw the other two versions as well. The vibrant color shot is beautiful!

Perry said...

Interesting textures

Birgitta "foto CHIP" said...

It is so fun playing around in PS don't you think :)
I like your work it has a soft red tone - maybe I had added some glow

Jan AKA Wammy said...

Very interesting shot...look at it and studied it for a long time.

Marites said...

I use Photobucket but I haven't explored much of its features yet. this is really fun! :)

MARGARET GOSDEN 2 said...

I don't know if I like it or not. But it is fun seeing what one can do with the tools available.

nonizamboni said...

Your many talents amaze me, Mary! And nice choice of photo to noodle with.
Happy RT!

Rambling Woods said...

That is an interesting effect..I like it Mary

anthony-samson said...

Hi Mary,

I have updated the information about flower "Red Beauty", its Cuphea Ignea", more info on my post here

chubskulit said...

That's very creative.

Karen of 3G2S said...

I think I would like it better with more contrast, but then again, that's how I like all photos, textured or not. :P

eden said...

Yes, I love it. Great job!

Small Reflections said...

I've not experimented much with textures, but I do like what you've done ... and perhaps (when time permits) I'll check them out. Love the pretty new header ;-)
Happy Ruby Tuesday!
Hugs and blessings,

Delphyne said...

Got my computer back and am red-y to Ruby Tuesday once again!

rebecca said...

i love that this is your 100 post!!!
happy blogiversary!
interesting use of texture. perhaps more contrast between the flower and your background would make your flower pop forward more.

thanks for hosting us.

Spadoman said...

I love the soft edges of this photo. It soothes the way it is seen. Could be a back ground for verse or portrait, or syand alone. I like it!

Peace.

stan said...

like the misty pink which gives the hibiscus? a sensual feel.

Mimi said...

It's an antique, delicate, faded pink, and it's lovely.
I've no idea how to use that editing software.
Happy RT, Mary.

Linnea W said...

Congrats on the 100th post! Your ruby flower looks dreamy!

Mylene said...

Your work is a good start :)

Happy 100th Ruby Tuesday post :)

Mylene said...

Very lovely!

Joy @ Joy Of Desserts said...

nuts said...

hi! great work of arts!

Jenn said...

I loved how you post processed this picture... I think I'd try that one out, too.

Auntie E said...

Not sure.. I like the background, texture. I would like to see the flower raised a little, set apart for the background. However it is fun to play with the different textures.

Judy Sheldon-Walker said...

Wow! Photo Bucket must have come a long way since the last time I used it. I love the way it separated the flower from the background and texturized it.

cHe said...

hello, i like your it:)

Gattina said...

It looks fairy ! I didn't know that Photobucket also does such things !

Alexa said...

I definitely like it! And big congrats for #100!

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

Hi Mary,

Neat daylily, even though it's kinda pink rather than ruby. Fun with the computer software, I see. I do like the shadow shot below. And by the way, I have a lily also, but it's a different kind. Take a peek if you have time:

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

It really matches the whole blog template set too.

Belle said...

Nice work of art!

Digital Flower Pictures said...

Hi Mary,

I posted one from your area. I like the textured picture. You might add a little more contrast.

BJ Roan said...

I like it! I love the similar hues in the flower and background, plus the texture is unique.

Marlene said...

That's a lovely work of textures. Cool to the eyes.

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

Great pictures! Thanks for sharing and have a happy RUBY Tuesday!!!

onangelwings said...

That is a great picture. Love the hue.

Happyone :-) said...

I think the photo is very pretty and would look great hanging on the wall.

carolina mts said...

No Mr Linky? Visist for some colorful scenes of a mountain town. Like the lily and effects.

@nemonen said...

Hi! I like your picture. I am a little bit coward to do something like you. I must be better on that because it´s fun to play with photos. Have a nice day.

Francisca said...

Congratulations on your 100th, Mary! I like how it looks like the light is coming out from inside the flower. And while I like the texture, maybe I'd have given it a bit more contrast; but of course, not playing with it myself, I wouldn't really know.

Mama Zen said...

I think that it looks fantastic!

reg said...

I really like that pic presented to-day/yesterday. It is very unique. I am so enjoying your RT as always.

charmie said...
