This image is the result of quite a bit of play and experimentation in Lightroom. Pulling down the saturation on every hue with the exception of the orange stamens brings a milky quality to this image which is heightened all the more by pushing the histogram into a high key zone. It’s a good example of a shot I could have easily overlooked because the full-color version lacked visual drama. I’m glad it caught my eye the other day and I stuck with it!
Technical: Canon 60D | 100mm (EF 100mm F2.8 Macro) | 1/500 sec at f4.0 | ISA 250
