Bloom of Surrealism

This picture is pretty much deprived of every last bit of realism – hence the title. Usually not what I do but with this picture i thought it needed some edge.


Bloom of Surrealism

Originally, the picture is of an orange flower (cultivated so don’t know the exact origin). Basically I took away a good part of the color in the picture and added cold tones. Filled some light into the picture – which resulted in the red glow that seems to come from within the flower. Strengthened the shadows and added some dark notes. Picture was taken with my 100 mm F/2.8 canon Macro lens.
