Botanical Abrstract #2a

With an "Oh, that's creepy!" comment from Susan, here is a runner up version of "Botanical Abrstract #2" as a solarized film effect, shifting the same picture in from Blossfeld to Man Ray in feel.

Technical: Nikon D700, Micro-Nikkor 105mm f2.8, ISO 200, f/16 @ 1/20s, tripod. The pod is sitting on white plexi and lit with a single Calumet Quattro lights, sans shower cap.  RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.6, Nik Dfine and Nik Color Efex Pro, starting with Solarization style #7.

I like the contrasty image. I don't remember (if I ever knew) the name of these flowers but you can find them growing in a pond in forest park near the old gate by the Jewel Box.
