Sturts Desert Pea - Australian desert flower

Postby pah43 » Thu Jan 15, 2015 3:38 am

This is my first real venture into HDR - its made from 3 consecutive shots under controlled light situation (but only available light), now I'm not sure if this subject is suitable for HDR as I have seen some pretty ugly HDR shots around so Im Happy to have this torn to pieces and hopefully I will learn more about this topic. :lalala:
It was processed in PS initially and then Lightroom
The flower itself is a desert flower here in Australia and is quite difficult to grow in a garden, I haven't grown this - its a commercially grown one but i wanted to record its beauty before I kill it by planting it in my garden :(

Nice work Paul.
Hope you're better at growing things than I am. :)
