The Many Hues Hidden in a White Mum

Shades of White

by nature rules

NOV 2017 CHALLENGE-Any Medium Contest Winner 
This is a grocery store mum placed on a white plate in the light of a window on November 9, 2017. Adjusting the white balance in the camera brought out blues, yellows, greens...whichever I wanted to choose. But my chosen capture was as close to pure white as possible.

But once loaded into Lightroom I began again with the many choices of colors hidden in white. They just appear naturally when the most beautiful and gentle way, in places that I could not falsely create. Lavenders, pinks, peach, blues, greens... I hope you can see them and enjoy them as much as I did from this simple white Mum. Thanks for viewing.
