take time…

DSC_3131LR…to smell the flowers. In this case plumeria. Oh, I wish you could smell them! Just lovely. These are long-awaited blooms from a plant we brought back (legally) from Kauai 2 years ago. This shot is from 3 exposures combined in-camera, then some work was done in Capture NX2 with color and contrast. The flowers are white with yellow centers in real life, so no trickery there.  The “normal” shots I was taking today of the flowers were just ho-hum, but this seemed more interesting to me. I’m hoping they’ll be around for several more weeks, so maybe I’ll take some more pics.

    they are almost transparent; and yes I can smell them! Also has the look of lace; but then again it could be an eye test? Can you work the same wonders with human faces??? Where were you for my passport picture?

What do you think?
