Default Echinops

A break in the heavy rain here left the air nice and clear and everything sparkling in the garden so I went out and got a few macro shots of the flowers. I really like how these two of the echinops worked out. C&C welcome.

I used Topaz Denoise 4 and unsharp mask after resizing to make them really crisp, then my AutoHDR program to bring out the detail out on the petals and in the shadows.

#1 - not quite ready to flower yet


#2 - just starting to flower

Nice. Looks like a pencil drawing.
