Taken in the garden of a friend where I got down into the flower bed and shoot towards the light to back-light the hair follicles . As I did not have my tripod, my camera was handheld so whilst it's not pin sharp, with several attempts, I got it as sharp as I could.
I shot it in RAW with 70-300 lens, manual focus at 180 mm and ISO speed 200.
In Photoshop, all I did was some tweaking to darken the background a bit and then enhance the green.
I was tempted to crop some of the top off, decided against it but now cant make up my mind which I prefer.
