2016—’Tis The Season For Yellow?

The December meeting at the Placer Camera Club was a “theme night”  and the theme was “yellow,” an unusual theme for this season and time of year but to me, a very welcome diversion from the ubiquitous  Christmas kitsch.   I found a single  Rio Samba rose remaining on one of the rose trees in front with backlit petals that intrigued me.  I wanted to feature the backlighting and  this rose was kind of on its last legs so I used my macro lens wide open for a shallow depth of field so that just parts of the petals are in focus.  Oh,  and I had a little help from Nik’s Color Efex Pro 4 to bring out some of the details.
