REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Two choices in macro

It's "Macro Friday" on Blogging from Bolivia again.  Fall is here:   cold nights and sunny days. Flowers are long-gone, except for my potted floribunda rose.  It's blooming again!  I've pulled the pot against the wall on the porch to protect the buds from frost, and I'm being rewarded with blossoms in late October.

I've played with the macro shot in Picnik, so one is soft and fuzzy and the other is sharpened in detail.  The color has been altered,  as well.  I just can't decide if I prefer the dreamy version or the detailed one.

Beautiful shot! Hmm, can't decide either! At first I thought the detailed one, but the dreamy version is also very appealing!
