Colors of Spring

By billma
Very little PS here. The effects were created by shooting low through yellow flowers with a focus on the white flower and a green bush in the background.

Had to "reshoot" the RAW with a step lower of saturation to get the desired tone.

Very well done, the background colours work well, excellent detail and clarity on the flower.

Great use of depth of field, isolating the single bloom puts it into the must see catagory. Click.

Lovely proportions. You must have been pretty close to the ground to take this one. Great first Macro post I look forward to more.

Beuatiful, I love it. Maybe a tad more DoF for the daisy would have been ideal but his would have had to have been finally balanced considering foreground and background. Excellent work.
