Title • flower power

Well, if when you viewed yesterday's shot you couldn't make up your mind whether you thought it was over-processed or not, you should be able to decide much more easily with this one ;-)

This started life as an HDR (High Dynamic Range) image (created from one RAW file )as I wanted to capture the neon sign against the stonework of this flower shop. However, after numerous attempts to postprocess it I realised that the interesting part of the image was the sign itself (which reads 'flower shop', I think) and that the stonework was a distraction; at least it was the way I was processing it.

So, here's the net result: it's massively postprocessed, and is now more of a graphic than a photograph, but there's something about these sort of images that I like.

Oh, and I haven't put up the EXIF data as it's largely irrelevant with HDR images.

And finally, thanks for all the kind words about the sick members of our family. Fortunately they've all recovered and the rest of us seem to have avoided the bug.

Update: If you're interested, the original is here:
