Tripod, Apreture Priority, F32, 1/4 sec, EV-0.7, taken outdoors on a rainy day with nice even overcast light.

The background is a rusted door on an abandoned garbage truck. I then applied several different filters (KPT Scatter, Corel Photo-paint Alchemy Plug-in, and Eye Candy 4000 Swirl effect) to the background only, to blur it and give it a painted backdrop look.

The Lupines are from my garden.I found the old pitcher or coffe pot in an abandoned barn, and the old trunk they are sitting on was $7 at the Salvation Army Store!
