Challenge: Perspective II (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon PowerShot S2 IS
Location: Arizona
Date: Sep 10, 2005
Aperture: F4
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/125
Galleries: Nature, Macro
Date Uploaded: Sep 12, 2005

Taken at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum.

Levels adjusted slightly
Saturation pumped up slightly
Very slight curves adjustment
Re-size and sharpen.

It might get slammed because people don't consider it "Perspective" but we'll see.

Might also get slammed because it's another Bug/Flower photo.

I think it's an interesting angle/composition. The photo was taken with the butterfly upside down, I did not just rotate the image. The flower points out and slightly downward and I took the photo looking almost straight down. I actually did rotate it so the butterfly was right side up, but the image does not look right that way so I kept it as taken.

I love the bold, bright colors. The yellow is very yellow, very natural, not oversaturated. This image is lovely, but I wish I could see more of the butterfly's wings.
