(Please enlarge for detail.) These flowers are oakleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia), a variety with delicate petals verging on translucence. I went for a lacy look in my texturing to complement the flowers’ fragile beauty. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/7.1, 1/125 sec, ISO 400, open shade, handheld) Textures are from Jerry Jones’ Shadowhouse Creations (Slightly Delicate-2) and Isabelle Lafrance Photography (Pollen, Stepping Stone).
