This is a closer crop of this most beautiful flower that I found in the Lyme Park Glass house in August 2009.
I love the colour of the flowers and the paper thin petals with their wonderful veined texture.
Nikon D90 18-105 vr lens
Processed in Photsho Cs3 crop, levels and then into efex pro 3 colour.
Tonal contrast to lift the petal detail and then back into Photoshop with a free down load layer blended in Multiply. All layers flattened and then into Efex pro 3 and added a darken and light to darken the edges and highlight the flower a little more.
Hand hald, P setting, poor light as in a glass house and very shady.
