The light in our yard in the early evening is truly magical, and that is my favorite time to shoot.
I was drawn to these lovely phlox blossoms and took many shots, but this one best captures the feeling of stillness and late light.
Processed in LR5 with basic adjustments and Kim Klassen’s Melancholy preset, which gave it just the tone I was looking for.
Then processed in PS with OnOne Perfect Effects using a custom preset from Nicole Young’s Portland Matte Collection, and finished with Kim Klassen’s kk_rainyday (color burn, 60%) and lightly masking out the flowers.
