Shades of Purple

by Kristi Hines · California, Coronado

One of the things I love to shoot is flowers, specifically closeups of flowers. I wish I could say that it was crazy processing skills that made the flower come out this way, but this photo actually needed little editing. I really liked the hazy feel of it.

Love this image, and while crazy processing skills are a plus, it is much better to get it done right in camera, equals more time to shoot, and less time behind the computer.
