Title: Flower Whiskers
I have no idea why I named this Flower Whiskers, only that when I see it, the first thing that I think of is "whisker stubble". I really like how this shot came out, although completely unplanned (of course). I enjoy the colors, from the deep purple to the light green; the short depth of field so that focal point is really small (and only a few of the 'whiskers' are in focus); and abstract-ness of the entire composition. I mean, you know its a flower as soon as you see it, but as you look at the individual parts, it's harder to see the overall picture.
I did lower the brightness and up the contrast a bit to give a little bit more definition in the separation of the colors. I also tweaked (slightly) the overall vibrance of the shot to bring out some of the more subtle purples.
I hope you like it!
