Challenge Entry No. 216

This is a another one of my last minute entries and what a cliche! I will never learn. Oh well :)

Shot using natural daylight similar to my mushroom setup. Shot in RAW and processed via RSE. Hardly any post processing involved in this shot. Adjusted minor levels and cloned out bent portion of petal. Slight burn. Ran through NI. Cropped to 630x630 and added a 1 pixel stroke. Enlarged canvas to 640x640. Ran through NI again. Sharpen. Slight USM and saved for web.

By the way, this is my first entry using Debbie's old 17-40mm f4 L. I love this lens. Thanks Debbie!

The quote by the way is from William Carlos Williams (1883-1963).

Sorry but I got a bit sappy today ;)

Nice solid, classic composition. Good detail. Nice lighting. The photo has a pleasing, serene, peaceful easy feeling, if that makes sense. Nice job.
