Floral #106

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 200mm ISO 200 1/60 f/16 Lr4, TpzSim; PsCS6

These blossoms were part of a bed of flowers just off the dining patio of the P.F. Chang’s in Chino Hills, California.  I was across the street when they caught my eye, and I moved across the street and captured a dozen frames or so of the flowers which were sprouting up in front of a low sand toned stucco wall, with a dark, shaded covered patio looming over the wall.  I isolated the flowers and darkened the entire background using layers and masking in Photoshop.  The Topaz Simplify “Harsh Color” filter was used to stylize the flowers.
