botanical photography

Something a little experimental.   I can't tell what species of plant it is,  but as you can see it is flowering and vine like,  grows in warm humid conditions.    A fair bit of work in Photoshop to isolate the plant from what in reality was a fairly busy background.  I was hoping to replicate the effect of a coloured drawing,  or pastel colour painting on a white surface.

High key botanical.

Detail in nature

Detail in nature,  feeling a bit green?     When I first presented this image on the internet,  I invited people to guess what it was given it's abstract nature.   Some people imagined it was a bird's feather,  one or two realized it was a closeup of a leaf.    I loved the deep single colour and the geometric lines.  ~KD Leaf detail, Phuket
