Day 229 of 365

The monstrose cactus is at it again…producing lots of buds blooming into the occasional flower. This afternoon I noticed another bud hiding, I think there’s 4 – 5 buds in various stages on different outcroppings. What looks like it might be the next flower is about thigh high, I look forward to a new angle for shooting as most flowers are well above my head.

There was something about this look in Luminar that got my attention, at first glance you may not even realize that you’re looking at the inside of a flower. I did make some changes to the look without adding any more filters, just playing around with the sliders for filters already being used…then there were about 3 – 4 filters in the look that I didn’t use.
