The Skirt

Diamond Bar, California, Canon EOS 60d, Carl Zeiss 100mm Makro-Planar

The yellow poppy was captured indoor.  I snuck it from outside my work place and brought it back to my office.  The poppy is wild here in California so it immediately withered before I could take a shot of it looking fresh so I inverted it and let it dangled behind a black folder.  I didn't use any flash.  No tripod either.  Hand-helding was such a pain that I have to shoot several images until my arms cramped.  The original image looked prosaic but I was able to bring out the texture using luminosity mask in PS - a  new technique that I learned so I applied it.
