This is lovely, Kim!
How about we do soft and dreamy? This would be perfect for the wedding season, I think :)

Love your image above.
How about 'everyday' as the theme? Or 'book love'? Can think of lots of possibilities and directions for both of those. :)
Happy week to you. x

Your image this week is beautiful as always! I love the big, bold blossom and that solitary leaf!

As for a theme, what about 'reflection'. Could be a literal reflection in water, glass, metal or whatever or it could be interpreted as more of an introspective reflection...

Lovely image, Kim !
About next week's theme :
or sweet treats (chocolate, cakes, ... ) :-)
or romantic words and sayings ...
Have a nice week,

Love this weeks image. I think a good theme would be renewal or inspiring words.

How about architecture?

Beautiful, Kim! Love sunflowers, myself! So I had to include one from a recent trip to EPCOT's Flower and Garden Festival. It was one of my favorites! Love you Musiclovin texture! Thank you!

I was wondering how you were doing - I see you must be doing good -- your photo image today is cheerful -- love those sun flowers and how you edited this one - I was thinking it would be fun to post images of any kind open Gates that led you on a path -- sound fun!!

Hi Kim
How about wishes, documenting our dreams...
May 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterViv Halliwell
My sunflower seedlings are up! I can't wait to see them bloom...
May 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterPatrice
I'm so behind with 2B...but took a moment today to capture the white lilacs with their bright green leaves...lovin' your sunflower!
It is...i'm so happy to be playing here today!!! This is beautiful Kim.

Kim, thank you for having this challenge for us all to enjoy. I know i have been enjoying them. Your images and tutorials are always special to all of us, and the one today is wonderful. I have a hard time with that dang little Selection Tool but it is always a good review to practice with it.

As far as theme:
1. b/w or color with lots of contrast, I love seeing different approaches of b/w's
2. Diptych's are popular right now and fine to tell a story or comparison of maybe the same image only with different textures.

Kim, I love the video tutorial showing a different way of removing texture. Photoshop has so many different ways of doing a similar process. Can't wait to try this one.
I'm with Gracie at the top of the list here. Soft and dreamy. Of course I'm in wedding mode with daughter's wedding coming up so I'm a bit biased. lol
I also like B&W since I don't do much of that but do love a good B&W architectural study. I also like the "books" idea. Lots of room with that one to give it your own interpretation.

This is so lovely, Kim!! Sunflowers are my absolute favorite! And thank you for sharing this great masking tutorial ... so glad it can be used with Elements, which is what I have! Really love your rose image, and the quote you shared with it, too! Now, as for a suggestion for next week's TT .... what about a single color theme, or even b/w, and maybe do a collection of three images in the chosen color, rather than just one. Another thought along those lines of 'color' would be a single image (with your textures added, of course) done with a color palette added. I've been learning how to do those color palettes, and they are so pretty!

So beautiful .... Like it !!
May 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTimur
I love sunflower! Thank you.

I think a good theme for next week would be
What does it means? - Well, anything that we belive that is a part of our personality -defining personality-
from hats to a small detail design in the living room...
But, NOT selfportret!

I hope my english is intelligible and you'll understand what I want to say
May 8, 2013 | Unregistered Commenteranastasia
I'm with Kelly...b&w with some color perhaps, which I have trouble doing, but so love seeing others.
May 8, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterPeabea
Love the sunflower!

How about "weather" for a theme? (Now that our Manitoba weather has finally swung from snow to downright warm and back to normal!)

I also like the b&w and "everyday" themes that were suggested above!
