Original image taken in my garden in Southern Oregon. I love the multi color look of this gorgeous Iris. I wanted to bring out the color definition more so I did the following:
I took a single normal exposure image and increased the exposure and saved it and also took the same image and decreased the exposure on it and saved it. I then combined all three images and used the HDR Pro Filter in Photoshop CS6 to process it. I then selectively added a texture by Painted Textures using layers in Photoshop CS6. The final processing of this image was done in the Oil Painting Filter in Photoshop.
