Dried Flower #4, Solarized
This is yet another mummified flower from Susan's potpourri bowl, interpreted here using a strong reversal monochrome solarization technique in Nik Color Efex Pro.
Technical: Nikon D700, Micro-Nikkor 105mm f2.8, ISO 200, f/16 @ 1/6s, manual focus, tripod, cable release, tethered to a laptop. RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.6 to crop and adjust color, then edited in Nik Dfine, Nik RAW Sharpener, Nik Vivenza, Nik Color Efex Pro and Nik Output Sharpener. A "Raw Umber Sepia" preset in Lightroom added the toner effect.
