BEST VIEWED LARGE FOR BETTER DETAIL
This is a shot that was taken on a spring day, May 29, 2010 at the conservatory at Longwood Gardens. While lining up this shot, I was in a bit of a rush to avoid a crowd of people coming up behind me and another large group that would have been coming toward me out of the door you see in the frame. Timing was critical, as it was a busy day at the gardens. In my haste, I failed to focus correctly for depth of field, so the farther objects are slightly blurred. I never liked that about this photo, so I never posted it. Not wanting to waste it completely, I decided that a textured layer might help.
The layer has added a bit of unexpected light and dark in places where there was none. I also embossed it to make it appear slightly more grainy. I was finally content enough with it to add it to my RedBubble gallery. All feedback is greatly appreciated.
