Hibiscus; best viewed in the larger sizes. This was taken in early summer but only recently processed. I rather liked the light and was fairly pleased with the dof on this.
Thanks for the warm response to my kaleidoscope. I really made me feel better about possibly using it for my Christmas card. Usually, I have lots of Christmas card ideas, but this year, I seem to be in a slump. Hope you are all having a good weekend. My daughter's kids gave a great performance and my granddaughter outdid herself. Hopefully, I'll have a few good shots to share from that. The light wasn't good, though, so I'm worried about noise.
Oh, I almost forgot. Someone asked about the technique used for the kaleidoscope. I used the technique Gavin teaches in his tutorial. It does use photoshop. Then I superimposed smaller and smaller versions of the same kaleidoscope on top of one another. At the very bottom, for the outside border, I used a totally different kaleidoscope from a shot of our Christmas tree. The main kaleidoscope was from a centerpiece on our dining table. It is late and I cannot remember the exact link to find Gavin's tutorials, but if you don't know about them and need it, send me a note and I'll look it up for you.
