Ebb and Flow

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 8 February 2011 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

Another one of my orchids with a gentle texture overlay to diffuse the tones. Also some Nik ColorEfex Pro along with Viveza. I love the flowing nature of the petals.

Another beautiful photo of graceful orchid, Barbara. I like everything about it - composition, colours, light. You prove that experienced photographer can come up with more beautiful orchid composition than just the common one.

Beautiful detail in the middle and the soft curves of the petals just melt into the background.
