Default Passion flower

I must have a hundred shots of this delicate flower but none were usable that is until now.

I have spent hours processing the others only to send them to the bin. The reds were blown out, the whites were over exposed and details were lost. This was tweaked in RAW then sent to Topaz detail and then to topaz clean.

So far it is the best (those little black specs in the white are ants).



Cheers.

That is gorgeous, like your DOF and composition.

Passion flowers make good subjects, and this is one, good capture.

I find shooting at -0.3 EV when there are white areas helps prevent over exposure, but at times it looks a little under exposed
