Challenge: Shez Tribute (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: Portfolio
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM
Date: Mar 15, 2013
Aperture: 9.0
ISO: 640
Shutter: 1/25
Date Uploaded: Mar 15, 2013

No glow added
I worked so hard to portray this for Shez... Struggled on several different things/ideas and then this one came to me. I had the words all along... but couldn't get it "right".

Then, this one. One of the least amounts of editing I think I've ever done... Basic editing included.

I know Shez would be pleased that simple is better... and pleased with all of our tributes to her.

Thank you for the ribbon. I didn't need it to be proud of this image for my sweet friend.

(But, I'm thrilled to have it! Thanks!)

This is a beautiful image and I know Sherryl (Shez) would love it. This touches me very deeply as I feel like that flower mourning the separation of a very special petal. Thank you! Kismet

I want to say a warm thank you from Sherryl's family for the moving tributes and kind words.
I cannot look at this without tearing up, very moving thank you it is beautiful.
It is also so fitting, she used to say 'Settle Petal'
Cheers
Ryan (Sherryl's son)

Absolutely appropriate message and beautifully done shot, great lighting. A bit too much glow added for my liking. The "Papyrus" font is way outdated and the centered alignment would make more sense if it was centered in the image, too. 7
