Foto Finish - Colorful

Happy Christmas Eve!  The present wrapping is done and the Christmas gift quilts are all snug in their boxes under the tree.  So now I'm kicked back with my coffee contemplating what to post for this week's Foto Finish.  Barbara's theme this week is colorful.  This  image seemed appropriate for today.

These were a gift from my supervisor.  I love all color and texture in this picture, especially all the red.  I've seen white poinsettias and even pink poinsettias.

Though not quite this pink.  What if they could be purple?

My favorite color is blue.

I kinda like the blue.  Not very Christmassy is it?  Still, this color and the shape of the flower remind me of winter and snowflakes. 

I don't usually play much with Photoshop Elements other than to do a bit of cropping, but I couldn't resist playing with the color slider in light of Barbara's theme this week. 

Have a very Merry Christmas.  Before you get to into the holiday, take a break and check out the colors over at Cat Patches

Aren't you something?! It would be interesting to see poinsettias in those colors but I'm still partial to the red. Great photo!

Happy Christmas Eve to you too! I really like the blue poinsettia! I just have a few more things to wrap!

Oooh, very pretty. You may start a trend with the poinsettia growers. I really like that pink.

Barbara said...

Beautiful, Kate. I love poinsettias. It's one of the best parts of Christmas. There are a lot of colors these days, and I'm just betting we'll be seeing blue and purple ones eventually. I like plain old red.

What fun! Have a wonderful Christmas - ours has just begun!

Blue would be very Christmasy! Looks like you had some fun.
