Mosaic Monday - Violets

It was gloomy and overcast today, so I spent time indoors reading and playing with the camera.
I used my new ring flash that I purchased for my 60mm macro lens, very inexpensive.
But I am very pleased with the results.


This is the flower from my variegated leaf African Violet,
each photo had a different editing process done.
I like them all but my favourite is the top left.
(Textures from Georgianna)
I hope you have a blessed week!!

Linking up with Mosaic Monday.

I think I like the top left photo best as well. But they are all pretty. I have not been gifted with the ability to grow African Violets successfully. But I admire them very much.

Very pretty! I love African Violets, but have never had any luck growing them. I love to see them in full bloom. Especially the ones edged in white and frilly. They are such delicate looking flowers, but I once worked with a lady that would just break a leaf off and get it to root. Amazing!

That is the funnest idea for a mosaic (is there such a word as funnest? There should be.) The different treatments are all lovely -- I couldn't pick a favorite!

A violet leaf looks like some amazing fabric with that sheen on the petals. I have always loved that and you've captured it so well.

Very pretty violets. The ring flash is a very useful tool to get some light into those dark spaces. Valerie

They're all beautiful, but the one on the top left has something of a 1920's aura.

Gorgeous blooms - I love those shades of pink. Great processing on them too.
