Lavender's blue, dilly dilly,
Lavender's green
When you are King, dilly dilly,
I shall be Queen

Who told you so, dilly dilly,
Who told you so?
'Twas my own heart, dilly dilly,
That told me so

Call up your friends, dilly, dilly
Set them to work
Some to the plough, dilly dilly,
Some to the fork

Some to the hay, dilly dilly,
Some to thresh corn
Whilst you and I, dilly dilly,
Keep ourselves warm

Lavender's blue, dilly dilly,
Lavender's green
When you are King, dilly dilly,
I shall be Queen

Who told you so, dilly dilly,
Who told you so?
'Twas my own heart, dilly dilly,
That told me so

The outcome is a slightly more vivid colour with better contrast between light and shadow. This was achieved through a subtle combination of the following.

Croped
USM
Autocolour
slight shadow/highlights adjustment
curves
colour balance
brightness/contrast adjustment
Size for DPC

I love the colors on this one.
It reminds me on the great trips I had to southern France.

Striking scene and well photographed to emphasise the soft, tactile nature of the lavender rows. Like a macro of a bath mat! 7

Wow, beautifull shot. Nice contrast with the violet and yellow. Is it natural or post-editing? Anyway, looks good especially with the perspective. It's unfortunate the sky's not saturated enough (for my taste).
