I noticed that sad red daisy off to the side in that vase of flowers my wife put out last week, and I kept telling myself it’d make a nice shot. While my daughter sang and played her guitar on the couch this afternoon, I went and got my camera and tripod and set up on the other end.
The western light was pouring in from a honey-tinted window above, and I did a 5-shot HDR, processed in Photomatix, then did extensive processing in PS (blurring the background, adding texture, etc.).
