A much larger flower than expected. Been open about ten days so I think its through any petal/sepal twisting etc. Sure was nice the first couple days when the petals were completely flat. First bloom seedling.
When I did the color adjustment, that is exactly what happened -- the yellow is more intense and deeper, and stands away better from the background. I've been in photography too long to totally trust my camera. Whether film or digital, there are so many variables, and light's color temperature is one of them. This isn't meant to be a criticism. It's just the teacher in me.Bob Wellenstein said:First, there is a yellow cast in streaks in the background, it is a cairn of sandstone rocks that had some lichen growth, which shows a bit when we've had a lot of rain (and the light is good). The flower is brighter in person than in the photo, but I try to trust the camera and not mess with color adjustments.
