In one of our recent Photo Roundups, I talked about how many photographers shy away from modifying the colors of any photo enough that it can be detected. Personally, as I said before, I disagree. If a photo is nice to look at, that’s enough for me. After all, almost every photo taken these days is manipulated digitally to some extent.
In that case, I was discussing a photo with extremely high color saturation. For today’s wallpaper, though, I went the other way and significantly lowered the saturation. Other than that, the composition is fairly standard, with points of interest (the bloom and its shadow) falling around the thirds-line intersections. I really enjoyed how the shadow of the bloom lined up with another emerging bloom.
