Withered tulip mosaic – take 2

The first mosaic was perhaps a bit sad because of the big photo in the middle,showing a withered tulip. Hopefully this mosaic is less sad and more “pattern-like”.  Sunshine through the withered tulips, made the leaf structure come out more clearly, and a lot of new motives showed up.

    aye, it’s much better like this 🙂 i like how the shadows and colors play on the leaves. plus all the different colors… a very nice and unique mosaic 🙂

    Thank you for feedback, Drusillah. I think you are right, this one is better. Possibly because the viewer now is more free to imagine whatever he/she likes to see.

    Oh, I agree – this one is also very beautiful. The patterns and colours definitely stand out more.

    Either way, though, Birgitte, both mosaics had their merits: it just depends what message you want to send out, and how you want the reader to feel when they look at it.

      That is so true and almost my mantra as a graphic designer. Actualy I think it is a good question to ask one self before the start of any new project, big or small. Of course the brain has to have a little vacation now and then, and enjoying the exitement about doing something totally without any plan.

    It’s very pretty. Sunlight on tulips at whatever stage is a lovely thing. I, um, liked the original better, but that’s just me.

      I am glad to know that the original isn´t all alone.

    It looks so rich, very much like silk fabric.

      You are right, it actualy looks like silk. The flowers were dry, but kept the glow for a while.

    Amazing composite, as always. You have such an artistic eye. I still have the one you sent me a couple of years ago displayed in my office. People ask who the photographer is all the time. I’m proud to say it is my friend from Denmark!

      Well, you should see how proud I am smiling right now! I am so glad to hear that the mosaic still can do some good. Congratulations with your comming book!

    Fantastic idea for a collage, Birgitte! I think you should enlarge each photo to 6×6 inch (or 12 x 12 inch!) panels and arrange them on a wall! Really, really neat—and I love the color palette, too.

      Thank you Cindy, you konw I appreciate your advices. I haven´t made any prints of my photos yet, but I am beginning to get curious about how they will look at paper. Perhaps I should make a try with this one.

    A very artistic mosaic, giiid. It could be a watercolour, silk folds, each of them a lovely still life. I like your way of looking at the various angles of a flower.
