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.
