If there is light in the soul, there will be beauty in the person. If there is beauty in the person, there will be harmony in the house. If there is harmony in the house, there will be order in the nation. If there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.

Very nice proverb! Lovely composite! Question....If this isn't HDR, what is it? :-)

2 Aug 2009 6:53am

@Dulcie: I think that I applied Nik's "Tonal Contrast" (one of the filters in Color Efex Pro), and then backed off on the opacity. It definitely is not HDR.

Veronique from Sarrouilles, France

Great job with the "composite" work!! Looks to me from comments, that no one has even noticed!!! Composition and colors are exquisite!!! Nice job !!

@Susan: Actually it's not a processing composite; it's just a straight photograph. Thanks for your kind words.

I think the exposure of this shot so very well maintained that each flower is standing out so well against the green and dark background.

Wow this is fantastic with such great color and clarity! Awesome work Jack - this takes my eyes all the way to the top and back down again for another look.

@Scott Schilling: Thanks, Scott. It is a bit problematic when the entire file does not show upon the screen; I don't know what to do about that.
