Flowers for Photography Contest

Johanna at An Old-Fashioned Girl is hosting a photography contest, and the theme is flowers, which is just up my alley. ;) The deadline is May 15th, so go on over there and enter!

Here are the pictures I'm entering (and they are completely unedited, except for some cropping, and my watermark on them):

A white dogwood blossom

 A pink dogwood blossom


Lily of the valley

 And last but not least, a beautiful rose.


  1. Lovely photos! And I love the rose!

  2. Wow, those photos are so beautiful! Great job getting dramatic looks without editing. The lily of the valley picture is so delicately and simply lovely.

  3. Your photos are gorgeous! I really like the rose one, the composition of it is just neat. =) Good luck in the contest!


  4. I awarded you on my blog, Melody! :)

  5. I love the pink dogwood blossom...beautiful! the lily of the valley is very pretty, too. And the dandelion...I like how it looks pretty and simple, even though it's a common weed. :) good work!

  6. I love the one of the white flowers that look like bells:)

  7. I love them, Melody! Especially the first two- the composition, coloring, and lighting are Perfect. I think I'd like to print that first one really big and put it up on my wall! Good job. :)

  8. By the way, the picture of you in your header with the rose in your hair is so pretty!:D

  9. Thank-you so much for your sweet comments, ladies!

    Sereina: I love the rose too :) Thanks for the award, that's nice of you to think of me!

    Merriette: Thanks! I actually prefer not to edit since I've gotten my "new" camera (it's not professional or anything, just has slightly better features than my other one). I'm obsessed with the macro setting (as you can probably tell).

    Sierra: Thank-you! Yeah, as I was taking different pictures of the rose I noticed it looked really pretty against the blue sky. Hence - this picture!

    Caroline: Thanks! Do you like the new layout, then?

    Carlotta: Thank-you! :)

    Abby: Aw, that is a huge compliment coming from you! Thank you so much! :D

    And for future reference, if any of you would like to use my pictures for your own private use (like to print, to save as your desktop background, etc), you just need to ask me in a comment & let me know what you're using it for, and I'll most likely be fine with it. :)

    Blessings to all of you!


  10. Yeah, this design is definitely more "you". The black just didn't fit:D

  11. Those are absolutely gorgeous

    Love, Bella Skye
