Drop of Color

Drop of Color

A macro of a new fuchsia plant we’ve added to the potted plant assemblage around the house. Shot at a shallow DOF, the front petal is somewhat obviously out of focus until the eye notices the small droplet that is in focus.

Slight crop, levels, cloning of some hot-spots and other blemishes, curves and dodge/burn on the droplet.
