On my walk home from church I stopped by one of my florists and checked to see if they had pink and yellow gerbera daisies. My plan was for 3 yellow and 2 pink. But first I crossed the street to a local drug emporium chain store and found they had yellow chick peeps and Pink rabbit Peeps. So I bought them. Went back to the florists. Found 3 yellow gerbera but on one passable pink. Purchased. Went home. I had some wooden skewers that I broke off at the pointed end in two to three inch lenghts and skewered each peep and then skewered the peep to the middle of each flower. Had to leave the straws on the stems in order for the flowers to stay some what up, but the drooped a bit any way. Arrangement of the top heavy flowers was hap hazard at best. Oh well. Shot with camera on tripod and cable remote.

Post: Camera raw adjustments in PSElements 6.0. Convert to jpeg. Layer adjustments for levels, brightness/contrast and hue/saturation. Sharpen. Crop. Spot edited a couple of imperfections in the stems and some white marshmallow on the left side of the chick most left in the image. Resize. Sharpen.

I like the picture, but think that a different angle wood have shown the Peeps in all their glory.
