We did some landscaping last fall and this spring has been a treat – each day we are greeted with lovely plants that are totally new to us. This is one of them – it’s common name is golden ragwort and the botanical name is “packera aurea”. Not surprisingly, it has yellow flowers, but the buds are two-toned, as seen in the photo. I tried a variety of shots but I liked this selective focus image best.
I processed it with Nik Color Efex Pro 4 Contrast Color Range, Topaz Detail Soft Looking, and three textures – Flypaper Textures Verdigris Mist, French Kiss Textures Classique Buffed, and Kim Klassen’s The Veil.
