The fuchsia garden is often my first stop at my local botanical garden, and near the end of the blooming season I came upon this mostly white fuchsia bud opening to show gentle touches of pink. I composed the image in the camera (no crop) and kept post-processing to a minimum (slight exposure correction and localized, low-opacity use of Topaz Simplify/Oil Painting). (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/5.6, 1/100 sec., ISO 400, overcast/open shade, handheld)
