Petal Abstract

Petal Abstract

More of a mistake than a carefully shot image, this only came to my attention after importing the images onto my computer. I was trying to capture a different part of the flower when the wind moved it as I took the shot, causing the point of focus to shift to the tip of the petal. The narrow depth of field and reduced exposure settings did the rest.

Crop, Levels, Curves, Unsharp, Noise Reduction, Vignette.
