What is it Called by robert-kim-karen What is it Called by robert-kim-karen
From acanthus to zinnia, what is it called. THe story behind this one is, I was editing flower photos for eventual posting, and thought to call them by thier actuall name. So I started searching the internet for web sites to help identify the particular flowers in my photos. A much more difficult task than I had imagined. In the process I've certainly learned a lot about flowers, and barely can pass one on the street without mentioning what that particular one is called.

Any how, I got a little side tracked while sorting out the photos, and this is the result. About 40 hrs to sort re-size and paste this to-gether. Hope you enjoy.

Full view for full effect please.


I am going to be pasting the best links I've found for flower ID's here as I sort those out too. Just in case you feel they come in handy. :)

Thank you :)
To be honest, I gave up on trying to ID all these things. When I was looking into classifications of plants, it became near ridiculous trying to separate out a plant by it's features. Some are a no-brainer. But some have overlap with others, and some have many names for the same thing. Bah, I just don't have the patience for that in this case. :)

Thanks. I love photographing flowers, and thought posting them one after another would be tedious. I eventually lost all those photos unfortunately. :(

Thank you. ;)

Actually, no tweaking at all. All of the photos are as photographed, with perhaps just a touch of levels and saturation to get them brighter. I went a little nuts shooting flowers and foliage after I got the DSLR, and have quite a collection of photos. All the work was in rounding up the ones I needed to match the color gradient, then squaring, resizing and pasting them.

Glad you enjoy this one. :)

I've seen this look done with material by patchwork/quilters (I did a baby quilt with some pretty florals - which drove me insane btw). Never with photographs though ... excellent job :clap: :clap: :clap:
