Break Out

Uploaded: April 02, 2013


While playing around with different tulip set ups one fell between the slats on my platform box. I said "why not!" and this is the result. Slight white balance adjustment during RAW conversion and vignetting added. Single tungsten lamp fitted with barn doors. Aperture priority at f/22 for 1 sec. ISO at 200.
