Awesome textures and layer work, Laurie! I love the colors here, too. You are such a fast learner. I remember when you got extension tubes and suddenly the next day you'd completely mastered them. Now you've mastered this. Will you please slow down for the rest of us? LOL #6553905

1/160s at f/2.8 ISO 400

My cone flowers did not do very well this year. Something really loved them alot and they always looked so tattered and torn....a sweet treat for some critter. I have been photographing a variety of textures that I see around me to be used as layers in future images when I feel like doing something different. I am still learning about the textures and layers...it is quite fun to play with. Textures from rocks in the garden were added in layers to this lone cone.

Exif: F Number: 2.8, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/160 seconds, Flash: did not fire, auto mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 90.00 mm, Model: DSLR-A100
