Challenge: Point of Color (Advanced Editing VII*)
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro
Location: Felda Fl
Date: Jul 6, 2008
Aperture: 4
ISO: 200
Shutter: 125
Galleries: Macro, Floral
Date Uploaded: Jul 6, 2008

Editing steps: Crop, Levels, Exposure, Highlights, Blur a brown spot behind the bud.
Then, copy to Graphic Converter to resize, sharpen, and remove fluff files for uploading.
After reading through the thread about this challenge, I did a re-edit, not touching anything to do with color, and working with only overall levels of light and darkness.
Manual 105mm f2.8 Micro Nikkor @ f4, Monopod, and overcast, natural light.
It's a hibiscus bud, and I liked the curved leaf. This was a walk around shot with a "new to me" old manual Micro Nikkor 105, and was not shot with this challenge in mind. It seemed to be the best fit image that I had available in the correct time frame.
It's a cliche theme image, so I expect about 5 for a score. It makes a nice desk top shot at screen size.

Nicely done. It seems just a wee bit underexposed to me though.
