Lily and Three Pads

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Lily and Three Pads
Lily and Three Pads
f/ 8.0, 1/208 sec., ISO-200, 11:03 AM, Longwood Gardens, PA. The sky was really variable the day I went to Longwood. The water around the lily and pads was dank. Something needed to be done so the water was selected, leaving the pads and lily alone, and did replace color.The water came out blue green, but pixelated. I then did a Saturation boost with Flaming Pear's Kyoto color. The design in the water is courtesy of Flaming Pear's Twist. I inverted the selection to the lily and pads and did a nother pass of Kyoto Color then deselected and buzzed. There was a bit too much bleed from the twist from the lily so I recolored the some areas there. Then I increased the contrast with a USM of 70%, 50 pixels and 0 levels.
