Granny's Bonnet

By brian1208
I think the name more accurately applies to the original, less ornate vrsion of the Aqualiega but I reckon my Granny would have liked this one Smile

I used a circular polariser for this shot as the it was a bright grey light and I wanted to lift the colour and detail. (The first time I've used it with the 300D) It seems to have done the trick as, apart from a crop to tidy presentation and a touch of USM there was no other processing

Superb detail Brian. Nice shot, exposure looks spot on, good colour and DOF. Everything I like in a flower photograph.

By the way I've uploaded the image of the damselflies in flight this morning to answer the challenge you set me yesterday.

The delicacy and translucency come over amazingly well, so smooth and not a trace of grain/noise to be seenSmile
