Heliotrope and Hummingbird

Description

Beautiful Heliotrope in the garden, daisies growing up through the greenery and a hummingbird has spied those lovely purple flowers.
The floral background was taken in my garden in Southern Oregon
The Hummingbird was added as a composite. I also added a texture and erased from the center of the image to give a more dimensional effect.
This image was processed in Nik Color Efex Pro and Vivezia and I used the Photoshop filter Craqlure to give a painted and embossed effect.

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
