This image from inside an angel’s trumpet is from one of my recent rainy Sundays (low light) at my local botanical garden. To get anything like reasonable depth of field meant shooting at high ISO. The noise pattern was tight and tidy, but I nonetheless ran this through Imagenomic’s Noiseware to smooth the noise out a bit. Just a very slight crop, and the only other processing was a bit of sharpening in Topaz Detail. Somehow the inside of the petals seems even more delicate than the outside, with the soft billows and fine textures. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/8, 1/125 sec., ISO 1000, overcast, handheld)

Second Place in “A Touch of Green” challenge in Pastels & Whites group (February 2012)

    This is just wonderful, Celeste, and does really look like a delicate patch work design as one of the comments below suggests…the subtle and fragile color is so pretty and so beautifully alluring too….of course, those patterns and leading lines add even more visual interest and, as always, your presentation is impeccable and unmatched. So fresh and so very lovely!

  • Thanks very much, Katherine! I’m forever on a quest to find the usually unseen aspects of flowers and share them, and this is a perfect example.
