This lovely iris reminds me of a flamenco dancer, so I put a brightly-colored wall behind her to showcase her talents. I photographed her at the Toronto Botanical Garden in June of 2009, when the irises were in full bloom.
I processed the flower with Nik Color Efex Pro 4 Contrast Color Range and then added 4 textures with various blend modes to create the wall.
