I took this shot of a wild flower near home. The man passing by saw me crouching in the bushes, and thought I was taking a sneak pee by the roadside!
In this case, I added some curves, brushed some texture back into the petals and converted to monochrome using a Topaz Filter.
I am stretching the monochrome concept here, as I applied a gold filter. It is ‘monochrome’ of sorts. To add some drama, I added in a deep vignette, much deeper than I would normally have done.
