Well today its another curve ball from me, I took my camera into the garden after work today to have a little play around to see what I came up with. I really liked this flower, and the delicate petals attracted me to the photo and I had seen this style of flower photo and thought I would have a go at it myself.

I tried to emulate the delicate nature of the flower with the processing and I think I may have done it lol. Well I will leave it in your hand to see what you think.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my photo and I hope you enjoy, all comments and critiques are much appreciated.

Cheers,

Matt

"Deep Purple" - contrasty and bold to me, Matt. Very natural processing but I'm not sure I'd describe a hibiscus as delicateTongue (That's not a criticism, just a description of the flower). Excellent image, straight out of left field (to keep the analogy going).
