Wood Lilies

wood liliesFriends, these wood lilies are such a brilliant hue that I had to turn down the saturation a bit, I know I rarely turn the saturation down, it is usually turned up a bit, but the colors are very bright and I felt that subduing the orange a bit would help the details.  I wished to emphasize the centers of these three flowers, so in processing, I straightened the right hand flowers, then cropped so that two centers are in the sweet spots, rule of thirds positioning, These are wild flowers growing in Crex Meadows and they are at their peak bloom right now.  The wild lily has an open bottom where the petals come off the stem.  The domestic lily is fused at the bottom of the petals, your natural history lesson for the day. til Tomorrow MJ
