Very pittoresque I think is the key word! It seems as if the tree was floating which makes it even more interesting!

Stan, Sanjay, Karen, Larissa, Danilo, Darren, Dan, Janice, Paul, Susana, Tom, Kathleen, Janet, Carla, and Brinn: Thank you all for such marvelous responses, you have made my day!

Larissa, I used a 100mm macro lens with a polarizing filter on this shot, ISO 100, aperture 22, shutter speed 0.3, on a tripod. I moved the camera slightly back and forth when I took the shot. In Photoshop CS, I increased the contrast slightly and added the VP preset filter, toned down a little, to bring out the yellow in the flowers. That's it!

congrats carol!
i was just curious about your process in shooting this image. i've tried (unsuccessfully I might add) to achieve this "look". hopefully you don't mind answering a few questions! did you use a long shutter speed? was the camera shake just a tap or an actual shake? one last question...how many exposures did it take you to get this amazing image? thanks in advance!
cheers...

Thank you all very much!!!

Katie, my settings were aperture 22, shutter speed 1/30, ISO 100, using my 100mm macro lens with a polarizer to cut down on some of the sun's glare. The camera was on a tripod, so I just nudged it very gently, took about half a dozen exposures and kept the two best.

Greg, thank you, that's exactly what I thought and why I took the picture...I really wanted to be napping under the tree instead of shooting it!!
