The Sky is Crying-Elmore James-1959
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFn538A_yBA

History of Red Roses
""The red rose began its illustrious symbolic history in Greek and Roman iconography, where it was tied to Aphrodite, or Venus, the goddess of love. Later, in early Christian times it became associated with the virtue of Virgin Mary. By the time Shakespeare rolled around it had already become a poetic standard that he, and later Gertrude Stein, both famously played with in their works. Throughout its long, storied history, the red rose still reigns as the ultimate symbol of passionate affection.""

"Now join your hands, and with your hands your hearts. "
-William Shakespeare

❤ See the Entire Valentine's Day Collection
https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/MOr2lB

History of Valentine's Day
""The history of Valentine's Day is obscure, and further clouded by various fanciful legends. The holiday's roots are in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, a fertility celebration commemorated annually on February 15. Pope Gelasius I recast this pagan festival as a Christian feast day circa 496, declaring February 14 to be St. Valentine's Day.""

How This Photograph Was Made
• Large sheet red poster board
• One desk lamp, face of lamp covered with tracing paper to diffuse & soften light
• Large white foam core on opposite side and above to reflect light back into set and glass
• Glass shaped ❤ with candle
• Matches
• Camera on tripod
• Custom white balance reading taken from white card
• Camera set to multiple exposure on same frame, 4 exposures total (not all cameras will have this feature)
• 105mm micro lens set at f32, 4 seconds for each exposure
• Slight pan to right for each remaining exposure
• First exposure sharp focus on candle holder
• Second and subsequent exposures each adjusted for softer focus at each step
• Final and fourth exposure creates soft bokeh flame
• Processed raw image in Photoshop Elements 13, for adding copy, adjust curves, color hue, saturation and spotting & sharpness

History of Valentine's Day
""The history of Valentine's Day is obscure, and further clouded by various fanciful legends. The holiday's roots are in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, a fertility celebration commemorated annually on February 15. Pope Gelasius I recast this pagan festival as a Christian feast day circa 496, declaring February 14 to be St. Valentine's Day.""

Twilight....
Missouri River, Parkville Missouri, USA
© 2017 Don Spenner

I'm touched & moved to witness the beauty of golden light at days end. For this image camera was mounted on a tripod due to slow shutter speed. By setting the white balance at 10,000 K I was able to achieve a rich warm golden glow. Final image was processed with Google Nik (free software) using HDR feature for a high dynamic range with final edits to curves, color and spotting in Photoshop Elements 13 on a trusted iMac.
