Before And After

    1. Thank you for your honestly, VK. I thought maybe some were getting bored with just nature shots. I’ll keep your words in mind when I do post my pictures. Yes it was fun to play and I needed to last evening. Chilly here as well …. wicked COLD wind. I’m staying indoors and catching up on cleaning and laundry. Sound like fun? Wow! LOL Much love to you! xo

    1. Sonia, I’m glad I did this post. Most are saying the first picture. I thought perhaps my “audience” was getting bored with regular nature photos. I see now that is not the case. Thank you for your honesty!!! Bless you! xo

    1. Thank you, Erika! Another one who sits on the fence along with Scott. LOL So far, I’ve had mixed feedbacks. I’m trying to see if the majority like natural or impressionism. It’s looking like I will be doing both in my future posts, just to keep everyone on his or her toes. I’m glad I did this post to get a feel for what YOU think. Much love to you! xo

      1. It really depends on what you want to share. Basically I like the original look more, most of all, because you are amazing in your micro photography and in capturing nature in the most beautiful ways. But I like seeing how creative you can be with those original photos.
        Big hugs your way, Amy 💖

    1. I’m more a naturalist as well, Karen, but sometimes I get the urge to play as I did last evening to let some stress off. When I do edit my pictures, I really strive to make them as close as possible to what I really saw. When lighting conditions interfere with the original, that is not easy to do at times. Thank you for your feedback. Much appreciated!! xo

    1. Thank you, Colleen, for your feedback. It looks like from the comments that folks are split …. some like the original, some like the second, and some are on the fence unable to choose. I’m glad I did this post. I wanted to get a feel for what my “audience” likes. Now I’m more confused as ever as to what to do. LOL

  1. The first one draws me in – it helps me walk into the magic and out of where I am, and that I appreciate in this moment. The second is like a beautiful painting that I am looking At – it is a work of art created from the heart to be admired from a distance.

    1. Thank you, Pragalbha. Your feedback is very valuable to me. I really love the way you describe your experience as you first looked at the original image and then proceeded to the second. Nice!! Bless you! xo

  2. I love what you’ve done with the 2nd one! It’s like stained glass – really cool! I love the people too, leaves lots to the imagination. I can’t pinpoint why I really love the second one – I just do. Maybe it’s the colors and the abstractness about it. Just really like it! Hope you’re well!! Much love, Donna

    1. I LOVE your comment, Donna!! Your enthusiasm I felt all the way from here. Thank you! I have yet to reveal which one is my favorite …. but …. how you described #2 should tell you about my choice. (smile)
      We had a gorgeous sunny very cold day today and yes I was out. That sun felt like manna from heaven. Even in the cold, that sun makes my day!! I am well. I will email you after the Holidays as to why I’ve turned the corner. I believe you will be interested. Much love to you! xo

  3. I prefer the after with its intense colors. Beautiful job Amy. Would you be interested in letting me use one of your photos to accompany a poem on my blog? No worries if you aren’t interested. Of course I would credit you and link back to your site. Let me know.

  4. OKAY! I get to pick and I pick 2.
    1 is a gorgeous photo. Others may have captured a similar quality.
    2 is fraught with your creativity. It is a unique, as you!
