HIBISCUS BLOOM, BIG ISLAND, HAWAII, FEBRUARY 21, 2013
Pentax-DA 18-135 at 135mm
1/400 sec. f8
I took this shot in the shade on an overcast and rainy day outside an art gallery on the Big Island of Hawaii, hence the sky-high ISO. Desaturating the background colors and denoising the photograph with Lightroom made the red bloom stand out all the more. A slight tinge in the background remains that I'll have to work on.
