About the Image(s)

Title: Scarlett Powder Puff Tree Flower

How I Did It: This image was made at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. These flowers always remind me of bottle brushes. This is the start of something new for me. I took Adobe's Black Friday offer for Photoshop & Lightroom 2020 and this is my first time using PS. Slightly terrifying!! Especially Lightroom, which I haven't touched yet. I think this may be the first image I've submitted anywhere that I didn't crop because I was so on top of this flower. I blurred the background. Thought about a vignette, but couldn't figure out how to apply one. Nikon D500, Sigma 150mm macro lens, f/2.8, 1/200, ISO-100, hand-held, no flash, Exposure Program-Manual, Metering Mode - Center Weighted Average. I also burned the highlights in the background.
