PLANT -- UNELLA MICOCAROA orginally from the Cape Province in South Africa.
Once again I am back shooting photographic illustrations at the Royal Botanical Gardens out in Burlington, Ontario, and using the following equipment of my Pentax *ist DL2, the Pentax 50-200 mm lens, the Pentax Cable Release, the Nikon Close-up No 1, the Slik Able 300 dx tripod, and Neewer 48. The Neewer 48 was a Christmas Gift in 2012 and is a RING LIGHT which allows us to use full power or light up either the left or right hand side.
Opened in Camera-in-the-RAW corrected the COLOUR BALANCE, and then opened in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7, resized to 600 pixels by ? for upload to this gallery then applied the UNSHARP to the setting which looked best to me, and then saved as JPEG for upload to this site which you are looking at.
