A green chrysanthemum bloom captured from a merchant’s outdoor display: this image is from the first day of experimenting with my brand-new Lensbaby – otherwise known as climbing the learning curve. :) Composed in camera, no manipulation, f/stop unknown as the lens does not transmit this information to the camera’s EXIF. (Olympus E-5 & Lensbaby Sweet 35, 1/250 sec., ISO 200, open shade, handheld.)
