This is a Janice Brown Daylily in all it’s glory – I just wish their season wasn’t over! We have a number of wonderful daylilies that were planted last summer but didn’t flower until this year, so I’ve spent many evenings out shooting them. The Janice Browns are done now, but they were such a treat while we had them.

Nikon D700 with Nikon 105mm micro lens.

I used a bit of Nik Color Efex 4 Pro Contrast and finished with several textures from French Kiss – Atelier Serenity, Atelier Lively, and Artiste Berrylishous.

    The color of this daylily reminds me of cotton candy – a color of summer for sure! You framed the flower beautifully, and the subtle texture work softens the area around the flower to create a lovely presentation.

  • Thank you so much for your kind comments and delightful description of this image, Celeste! And thanks for the fave as well!
