Country Flower Stand

Uploaded: October 01, 2011


These delightful flowers (gladiola and sunflower) were being sold by the roadside using the "honor system" in Berrien Springs, Michigan. I also think the chair itself is quite charming.

I had a lot of digital darkroom editing to do to achieve what looks simple. I took away the darkness behind the chair and cloned in more grass and dirt, I also filled in a critical empty spot in the sunflowers with more sunflowers. I also extended the table at left where there was an abrupt stop. A few texures and blends and it is complete. Thank you for the wonderful suggestions from FFFP! #1412325
