Turned into a Flower by signmeupscotty Turned into a Flower by signmeupscotty
The title is a reference to Greek mythology, where Narcissus is turned into a flower. The daffodil has been placed in front of crinkled tinfoil. I created an artificial horizon from it, and am quite pleased by the effect.

I'm loving the effect the tinfoil gives, I think it's very creative of you to think of that.

Yes the effect is excellent. In fact from the small thumbnail, I thought this very brave daffodil had fought it's way to the light through deep snow. :D
Love the bokeh.

Thank you very much for the great comment. I knew the bokeh would be nice with tinfoil as a backdrop. The snow look was a welcome surprise, though. :)

oh pretty, makes me think of sunshine and the spring....

... but I always thought being turned into a flower was too good a fate for Narcissus. the guy was too full of himself, and quite cruel.

I'm glad to hear, that it reminds you of sunshine and spring. Just my intention. :hug:
On the fate of Narcissus, I think you have a point there. Never questioned it myself, but a little bit more punishment would have been appropriate indeed.
