Lily of the Valley Framed Print

by Todd Smith on September 9, 2009

I just made this framed print of a new lily of the valley image, which is coming out in tomorrow’s newsletter. Couldn’t wait to share it with you.

Small print size seemed right to me since viewing the lily of the valley in nature is an intimate experience. Only when you get down on the ground can you see the tiny bells and smell the beautiful aroma.

I also like the wide mat to isolate the image more and add to the feeling of delicacy.

What do you think? Would you do anything differently? I’d love to hear your opinion.

I love this picture. I’m wondering what it might look like with a background other than white.

Thanks

Thanks Diana.

How about this? It’s still a white-ish mat, but less glaring. Or would you rather try something totally different?

Oh I really like this one. If I stare at it long enough it looks like I’m looking through a long hallway or tunnel or special lens at the flowers. For me it just makes them pop.

Thanks for letting me see that.

Awesome! I like this version better too. The antique white mat suits the flowers perfectly. Thanks for suggesting to try something more. 🙂
