The last convention of my friendly Cosmos flowers. Fall has arrived and soon the freezing temperatures will take out my crop. They are great re-seeders!
This was taken outside, afternoon when light clouds diffused the sunlight.
I used several painterly filters in PS and slightly vignetted the edges.
