A tulip passed it's best before date with a fallen petal creating a window for the stamen.
I processed this in Nik software 'colour effex pro 3.0'
choosing the vignette filter
option so that I could, by playing around with the options, get rid of a somewhat cluttered background. I finished off in PS working with layers and masks to bring some detail back into the flower.
I did several shots of these dying tulips, I was interested in their varying stages of decay and I am enjoying experimenting with them so taking all comments on board from my last upload, I realise that less is more in some cases and I quite like the simplicity of this one.
I really appreciate all the comments and critique and thanks to all who offered their time to do mods.
Have a good week everybody
