    Great work. How did you process it ?

  • Thanks for the interest, French. I upped the “vibracity” (which is similar to saturation), but that’s about it. I don’t think it’s even cropped. The image was made with the use of a close-up lens (Canon 250D) attached to a macro lens (Canon EF 2.8 100mm macro) on a Canon 5D Mark II body. When shooting wide-open with the close-up lens, it gives a surreal, soft look (something more than normal bokeh) to whatever’s not in focus. I think that’s what makes this shot look a little more processed than it really is. Cheers!

    Wow, that colour is certainly something to behold! I’m not great with names of flowers, but these might be freesias?

    Alstroemeria is the flower – the defining moments are the leaves and the little puckery bit at the tip of each flower. This is a beautiful image and thanks for sharing your technique!
