POTD: You Get What You Ask For, Sometimes

I love the delicate beauty of this clematis flower's petals juxtaposed with the almost mechanical intricacy of its filaments.  This flower is from Amy's favorite plant, gifted to us by a beloved friend, Lydia.  

Shot with a Canon 7D at ISO 320, f/8 for 1/40 sec.  The camera was stabilized on a tripod. The file itself was processed in Lightroom, Photomatix Pro, Lightroom again, Photoshop, with Topaz Adjust, and then final tweaks back in Lightroom.

Enjoy!

 This clematis plant has nearly taken over the corner of our house
