Double Ellen

By chase
Another Lovely Hellebore from my garden,they are starting to get eaten by the slugs just now so a few holes in the leaves Sad

Went for a slightly desaturated high key image ..I'm really just experimenting with my new stuff Wink but I wanted a little more of a painterly look this time.
Lit by daylight plus a small lightbox,not that much light around today.
HDR of 3 images,each one-stop apart,combined in Lightroom & finished/fiddled with in Photoshop CC.

Just for Fiona...this one is 'Double Ellen' Grin

Constructive criticism welcome as always,mods are enabled too.

Tanks for taking time out to drop by.

A beautiful artistic image. A bit of work involved but so worth it.

Lovely work, looks dreamy and a little like an illustration from an old plant book.

Oh Janet, it's just gorgeous. I am so pleased you are back showing us how it should be done with these flower shots. They set me off on the road way back when and they still excite and inspire me. As ever, thanks for the technical info. It is so useful. Ta too for the gen on the variety. I am always on the lookout for new additions to my garden collection (which are not as far on as yours). I am wondering if you are on holiday/left work/family changes to enable you to be back here. Whatever, so good to see your work and I look forward to more.
PS The Club have asked me to take the floor one evening this year to do a presentation on still life photography. I am flattered and quite looking forward to it Blush When I think where I was at just a couple of years ago.............
Very best wishes
