Japanese Anenome

By taggart  
Japanese Anemone

Photographed at the Hershey Gardens, Hershey , PA.......

......where I enjoyed meeting Joline, a fellow EPZ member, as she passed thru Pennsylvania.

ISO 400 f8, 1/200 Oev, 200.0mm

I did not like this image as the background was very dark and did not work well with the delicate, white flower, so I used a vigneting filter and some others in PS. Comments and crits welcome!

Ooh I like this. Your PS work has certainly paid off. Is the blue tinge in honour of the medals for mavens?

A lovely image Jenn. You do these so well. Almost so delicate and brittle one might be frightened to touch it.

What a fine editing job. The white on white is incredibly beautiful, like a dream. I also like the slightly off center placement.
What a fine day we had! I haven't gotten to my Hershey shots yetSmile
