Dreamy Daylily Portrait

I have been experimenting and trying out some of Nik software that compliments our Photoshop program. Like the last daylily picture, this image was not taken in a studio. I took it outside in the flower bed near the front porch. The software lets me selectively black out the background with just a few mouse clicks. It’s amazing. And I used a “midnight” digital filter on this one, which gave the flower image a soft, ethereal glow.

I sure like how this photo turned out!

P.S. Don't forget to click on the image to see this one BIGGER! You'll be glad that you did!


  1. ....picking up my camera from outside where I threw it....(hanging head in shame)
    Geeeez Girl....Beautiful!
    Keep 'em coming!!

  2. This is really beautiful, Donna! I am slowly but surely learning Photoshop...so complicated!

  3. I still have my daylily picture you sent me last year somewhere on my LACIE exterior hard drive that isn't working anymore. Sigh.

    Yes, it's a beautiful picture. It makes me want to reach out and touch it.

  4. I looked at the picture and I wondered how you did the black background. You read my mind and told us...lol
    That is gorgeous. And I did click to make it bigger and your were right. I was glad I did

  5. that is a gorgeous photo!!!!

  6. Gorgeous flower! Gorgeous photo! I'm getting ready to download Photoshop - can't wait to learn more about using it.

  7. Oh my gosh that is so pretty!!

  8. Geez, this photo makes me want to crawl inside the flower, rest my body on those yellow stamen, and gently fall to sleep. Love it! I, for one, am thankful you got the new photoshop software that you did. It's fun watching your wheels turning. :-)

  9. Beautiful day lilies, wonderful photos, Donna.
    I clicked on it and it turned out smaller! So I double clicked on it and it wasn't any different. But it looks large enough as it is...and gorgeous.

    Loving the church and the doors below, thank you for showing us.
