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.

Photographing from the top, I used some dried natives, edited in Lightroom and used my own preset of “Dreamy”, finished the editing in Photoshop Elements. This is a beginning and will do some more later.
A selection of photographs taken today, using macro lens, side light and processed in Lightroom.
Tea towels by the pond. Sorry about the slopey horizon. Desaturated image and played around with filters so many times to achieve this look.
My play this week is with some hibiscus photographs and presets called Gentle and Chocolate in Lightroom.
Hibiscus with Chocolate preset and background of “Addnoise 1”

I like how the colour of the hibiscus is altered from the brilliant red.
