Not sure what goes here, I'm new at this, all I did was stand over the flower, point and shoot.
This flower is so very colorful that it could only be shot at certain times of the day. I tried several times and the hue was just to much for the camera. I don't like to fool around with effects and play around with tricks to make a picture look better - I just point and shoot and hope for the best so color adjusting was out of the question. I hope you like it -it's one of my favorites!
Early, dewy morning is a great time to capture perky flowers. The color in the shot is not edited at all - I only made it a bit sharper - that color is that intense.
