A still life floral iPhoneography image. Heavily textured to give a painterly slightly vintage feel. This style of processing is something I enjoy. I very often regard the initial capture as the raw material to be tinkered with until the resulting image emerges. I wouldn’t describe florals as my typical genre but as I have a floral gallery collection I must process more of this type of image that I realise.
