I love irises. They are such stately and varied flowers. I often think that God must have had his full paintbox open when he created these.
Sadly this one is not in my garden but in one I visited in May last year.
And this image is one by the gorgeous 50mm prime with all its lush blurriness...
For the Friday Flora (Freitagsblümchen) group.
Thank you for taking the time to look. I hope you enjoy the pwerty flower :) Happy Friday!
(Lest you wonder, I routinely change the EXIF dates to force Flickr to sort my images in the right order - I don't do that for groups that need a fresh image from the week. If I do change it, I normally mention the capture date in the description)
[Developed in Capture One using multiple layers to take out the background, and a slight bit of selective colour tuning.
Sharpened with Unsharp Mask in Affinity Photo.
Removed a pollen beetle and some cobwebs and spots (using the inpainting brush - like the heal tool).
Defringed a cyan fringe and here we are :)]
