Playing around with a photo I took tonight.

The original:
Wowza, that's quite magenta.... In reality, the flower is a deep purple, which is probably the most difficult color for a digital camera to render well. I just liked the spikey center.

So, playing around in Lightroom, I applied the Bleach Bypass preset:
I prefer the pink and shades of brown to the bright magenta.

Finally, for Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday, I added her simplicity texture, multiply blending mode at 75% opacity:
Soft Pink and Brown

Which version do you like the best?

I love it. The original was amazing but I love the more muted colours with the textured one!

Beautiful in its simplicity .......sometimes the simplest images make the most profound statement.
