Compared to Mystery Flower #1, this is a more dramatic HDR treatment with some liberties taken with the tone mapping. The vertical leaf on the far right came out looking almost metallic gold and captures the leathery feel. I plan to process it again using the restrained HDR processing.
The monochrome treatment here uses a sepia/cyan split tone. It is hard to see in the JPEG, but the tone range is quite dramatic.
