Simple beauty is the climber part of a pea plant. I used the ring flash to darken the background out (my open garage...) and isolate the image.

Yes, the tonemapping on the backlit orchid really brought out the grain in the flower. I played with it quite a bit in Photomatix and initially selected a look that was much softer but not as well lighted as the version I finally decided on that you see. To me the center of the flower looks like a transformers autobot's symbol...

and a couple more from me.

Wrapping it up for the week, I'd like to make a few comments:

@RM - I am slightly disappointed that we only got to see one image from you this week, BUTT what an image it was! Very lovely model and some great processing in your unique style really added a nice touch.

@tiffpix - I enjoyed seeing your fireworks in the last installment, and the ones you've posted this round are really nice. "Reds" is my favorite, as you've got a good exposure as well as some lit ground for context. well done.

@FPZ - "Bloodbath in the Fridge" really looks great to me. The metal, the slushy ice, the green, all contribute to the overall effect.

@bcb - really nice varied set this time and all interesting subjects. I like your phaelanopsis close up as well as your twilight zone BW. good work Tim!

@gooz - love the alien and you always leave us wanting more. nice work.

And the winners are:

3rd place:

Blackcloud Brew, "Twilight Zone?"

Now that was a shocker considering the great images this week. I am traveling all week on business but will have my computer with me. I know its been a challenge getting out to shoot for everyone. Lets try to get everyone involved this week. Cheers. JIM

PS: Thanks Mike
