I keep saying I will move on from flowers… I guess they are still fascinating to me. Don’t worry, I’ll post another photo tomorrow!
This is a very close up macro shot of an Ranunculus flower (and I hope I’m spelling that right). I love how there are just small touches of focus throughout the image, and how the white area is clearly very fuzzed out petals, and has some mystery to it. I didn’t do too much to this, just adjusted the white balance and used noiseware to remove some small grain in the out of focus areas. I liked keeping it cream colored, although there are white sections in the photo.
