This one is dedicated to Martine Calv, whose birthday it is today. Martine is the wife of Robert Calv, a.k.a. Perryhooter. I am hoping to meet Robert and Martine in October when they take a trip to Niagara, a very popular destination for TL members :)

The photo is from my stock of flower photos saved for special occasions like this :). this one was spotted in front of a local Dairy Queen ice cream shop.

Martine: you deserve an ice cream today too :)

Tech: Captured in raw and adjusted levels, contrast & saturation in raw with PhotoShop CS2, converted to jpg, resized, sharpened, framed and signed

Thanks for looking and for all your critiques, workshops and suggestions. Have a healthy, happy, and safe weekend.

hi Silke

Impressive color saturation and richness of this macro flower shot. The sharp details really bring out the freshness of this flower and what a nice post for tribute.

tfs, bill

Hi Silke,
I love this close up shot of this colorful flower. amazing details in the pedals and stamen. I really like the vivid pinkish color in the pedals and the green near the base of the pedal. The light is wonderful here. Our Dairy Queens here don't have these beautiful flowers. Great shot Silke.
