Tiger lily on black

There wasn’t much that I needed to do to this image of a tiger lily to make it appear to glow – the coloration of the petals took care of that for the most part. The black background served to heighten the effect. Slightly underexposed to intensify the colors, some sharpening, levels adjustments and Orton processing applied in Photoshop Elements 6.

Photo blogging: And now for something completely different. Denis Darzacq is a French photographer who takes strange pictures. His latest effort is a series titled Hyper, which depicts break dancers doing their stuff in what appears to be grocery and retail store settings. I’m sure there is art in there somewhere, although it looks like it could have been titled Slip and Fall in Aisle 2.
