Purple Star

By ChiliMan
I have no idea what this flower is (which is shameful since I'm a flower nut) but it's pretty, isn't it? Turned it into my wallpaper. It's only about an inch across (the flower, not my wallpaper).

Awww...thanks, Kim. I'll use an offset angle the next time. I usually do for flowers unless I'm trying to capture symmetry or pattern. For this one, I didn't really think about what I was capturing and just thought, "Hmm...lemme see how close I can get with this new camera of mine" (lol). When (if) it blooms again, I'll take it again with your suggestion.

Thanks, Karen. I just went into your portfolio to have a looksee - WOW, by the way - and interestingly enough, I'd voted for your blue mason bee yesterday!

As for my purple flower...hmm...I'd boosted the contrast by 20% or so...which I don't know if I should've done. The original (my wallpaper) has more delicate shades of lilac and lavender and such. This one's more bluish and stronger. I DO like the colours...but still.

Never mind. I'll leave this one here for now and not be so trigger happy with the contrast the next time! Live and learn, eh?? Smile
