Flower

Maroon Flower from The Salutation

A photograph of a flower taken at The Salutation in Sandwich.

Back in July 2015 we visited The Salutation in Sandwich, Kent… and I took a photograph of a wonderful, vivid, maroon coloured flower.  I played around with the crop and did some small edits in Lightroom before exporting this image to Photoshop.

Keeping with the powder paint effect I have been doing recently… I then decided to tone down the flower and create this version of the image

To create that effect I added  Vibrance, Saturation and Gradient Map adjustment layers to the image..  I then added a colour overlay to the box outline.  Once my image was imported back into Lightroom I did two further edits, by creating virtual copies.

With my final edit being a monochrome version

We both have a desire to travel and hopefully one day move to somewhere where it is picturesque and a photographer's delight.

Love this effect!

I am really enjoying playing around with this type of imagery… as most of my photos are 3 x 2 today I decided to play around with free powder brushes I downloaded to create my own backgrounds to work with.

I just love comments... Thanks for stopping by...
