Bought these last weekend intending to do some still-lifes. Procrastinated. As you can see, that was $11.60 well spent. :rolleyes: Wasn't going to waste time on PP with a lousy pic, just wanted to share my frustration.

(I need to iron that background, too)

Don't feel to bad I've done it myself.

I'm really sorry to laugh at your misery :-D
Flowers don't come cheap eh? My sister works as a manager for woolies foods and gets their perfectly good "waste" flowers for about 50cents a pop (like yours)...
She's starting a flower bussiness!!
Hey, but you're a photographer, work with it :-)

Not necessarily wasted. Let them wither more and then get pictures with a different mood.

Looks great except I can tell a background is there. Otherwise a great shot.

It's hindsight, of course, but I could've tried to work something with them.

As far as the background, I didn't even try to hide it. I was more amusing myself at this point with the idea of posting my pain. :lol:

I think the red one is the saddest. . . .

A few weeks ago I bought whole coffee grounds to photo graph. I have yet to do them. I am glad they don't wild though. Look on the bright side. It is only 12$ and not 60$ like v-day roses.
