It’s finally Spring here in Wisconsin.  It’s still cold, but the flowers are out.  Yay!!  Time to shoot flowers and find things with color!  

With this macro shot, I intentionally left the depth of field very narrow and the flower mostly out of focus because I knew I was going to process it with an impressionistic look.  Normally, you’d want to focus stack to make sure the entire flower is sharp.   But since I knew I was going to add a ton of textures and a couple of passes in Topaz Impression, I skipped that step in shooting.
