Creative Interpretations: Balsamroot

I shot this from about 35 feet away using a 400mm zoom. Kind of a different way to shoot a closeup for me. Anyway, I thought it would make a nice photoart project

Alan


( I am looking forward to seeing some smudges on this one.)

Re: Creative Interpretations: Balsamroot

that is a cool way of shooting a close up Alan, here is one smudge but not sure if it does your great photo much justice

Re: Creative Interpretations: Balsamroot

Alan, thank you, very nice shot and beautiful work everyone. I was fooling around with the KPT Gel a little and goldplated the flower... added another try copying the old masters :-)
