Cone Flower

Posted by
Monte Stevens (Fort Collins, United States) on 27 July 2009 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

I wanted to post this image as like the colors but there are thousands cone flower images like this. I asked myself how I could I make this image different? If anyone has followed my photography over the past few years you will notice I do very little post processing. After some tweaking around with Lightroom 2 this is what I came up with. What do ya think? Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

NIKON D300 1/50 second F/5.6 ISO 200 200 mm

I think you have managed well in processing this flower. The smoothness is lovely.

These are such strange flowers . . they go thru all those stages and look intriguingly good throughout ! Your presentation here is beautiful, hafta say.
