BUT THE VASE IS SO SIMPLE!
Yes, the vase is simple, but that is what is needed.
Do you want to see mostly the flowers or do you want to see mostly the vase?
Something has GOT to be the main feature in the photo!
The vase complements the flowers but the vase doesn't compete with the flowers.
I photographed this image against a plain light colored wall.
After I shot the digital image, I then manipulated it in the computer.
I used my favorite smudge tool and then I placed textured layer which I designed onto the image.
Then I adjusted the opacity of the pasted in layer.
Challenge for the day:
Take a look at your vases. What vases could be candidates of later being used in an image?
