Hydrangea Buds

What could be more beautiful than a hydrangea bloom just opening its petals. You can almost see it in action with this photo because of all the different stages the buds are in.
Yesterday, I drove around my town taking pictures of amazing flowers so I could play with the images in Photoshop Elements and incorporate them into my artwork. I will probably leave behind the previous picture I posted and come back to that later. These real life images are holding my attention for now and I will see just how far I can experiment with them.
