It's been a while since I grabbed the camera and dove into some flowers, but this weekend I made it a point to do exactly that. I have 400-odd shots to sort through, most of which are complete and utter dreck and a few of which are only partially dreck. Tonight I did a preliminary pass and did some preliminary photoshop work to see how they cleaned up.
The two orchids are... OK. Not awesome, but potentially promising. The one in the middle is driving me batshit, though. I look at it and decide that I really like it, then look back and hate it. Love, hate, love hate. Love the concept but hate the execution? Need to go back and reprocess from the beginning? Need to crop? I won't be the least bit surprised if I wake up at 4 a.m. having nightmares about that flower eating me alive.
