A wild and crazy interpretation of a canna leaf I shot back in September at the Tower Hill Botanical Garden in West Boylston, MA. The leaves are long gone here but I had a ball playing with this image.
I used all kinds of filters – Nik Color Efex Pro Contrast Color Range, Topaz Adjust and Simplify, and Filter Forge Metalizer for the metallic effect.
Since I’m not (usually) a winter shooter, I plan to do more experimenting and there will be more abstracts to come!
