From childhood’s hour

From childhood’s hour I have not been
As others were—I have not seen
As others saw…
             (Opening lines of Edgar Allen Poe’s poem entitled “Alone”)
Note on the image:  this is a photograph of the center of a Clematis flower, which I’ve processed in Lightroom 4 and Nik Color Efex Pro 2.

  3. This one is really different. I didn’t know you could do that in lightroom.

    • I use both Lightroom and the NIK Efex filters (color and silver) for most of my post processing now. I used to use Lightroom exclusively, but the Nik Efex filters for Lightroom are fantastic.

  5. Beautiful and very unusual for a shot of a flower – it’s like it’s simultaneously hiding the flower and revealing its true nature. It also makes me think of a dancer from a thirties musical, seen from above.
