An experiment tonight, as I wanted to see if it was feasible to use tone mapping with flowers. 3 exposures (F20, 18 and 16), combined using Photomatix, plus a few tweaks in Photoshop.
I look forward to your views on the result Smile

Weird this Allie, i have thought about this too?????
Well, it's not bad, not bad at all. There are a few petals that look slightly blown and am not sure if the T.M. has done this. Otherwise a great shot.

Well, I'd never have known you had tonemapped this, love your composition and delicate background. Just a few blown petals, but I do tend to be a bit too picky about this.

Idea works very well Allie, great colours through the tone mapping.

Just a few petals a little bright but it certainly doesn't take anything away from a super shot.

The first thing I noticed was the clarity. I think it looks great Allie, at least with this image I think tone mapping worked very well.
