Shot just after sunrise in the flowerbed against a piece of black foam board. There was a band of clouds on the horizon that provided some nicely diffused light. For once I did nothing to the saturation at all, these are adjusted for white balance and that's about it. 1. First view. I like this one because it shows just how complex a structure this flower has. I've never seen an iris formed like this one is. 2. Second view. I shot this specifically to show the serrated edge of the inner petal. The extra buds at the bottom seem to either be loved or hated- no middle ground here! 3. Same shot as #2, but cropped to take a bit off the top and the stem. The buds and the bit of fluff on the lower left petal were cloned out. I think I may put a bit back on the top, but I'm not sure yet. Some form of this pic will be entered in the county fair in August.
