This is a different perspective of shooting flowers looking down, I placed the hibiscus flowers in an old milk bottle and place it on the gravel outside, the sky was just after dawn with clouds. processed in Lightroom using KK preset “Today” and finished in Photoshop Elements using KK Grunge texture background and RadLab POS filter. I had wished the stamen was in focus but these mistakes happen.
