"Paintings"

Here are a couple of my first attempts at "painting" with a lens -- a camera lens, that is. Painting with a lens allows the photographer to photograph the world around him in ways that rival actual paintings and unintentionally misleads viewers into believing the work was accomplished with photo editing software. The first picture is simply an attempt at "punching", or placing color behind your subject to draw attention to it. With the second picture, I actually tried to render a brush-stroke effect (don't mind the blurry flower). What do you think?
