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!
