Orange Iris

A new iris that I ordered last fall.  I photographed it about 6:30 pm to get evening light which works so well on warm colors.  Processed with two layers of texture.  Did some partial erasing on the texturing.  Dodged and burned.

Camera settings: F/8, 1/160 sec., ISO 200, focal length 74 mm.  No flash.


Apple Blossoms

Our apple trees are especially full of blooms this spring.  The bees are happy!  Processed with Topaz Clean, dodged and burned.

Camera settings: F/5, 1/250 sec., ISO 64, focal length 13.8 mm.  No flash.
