The Floating Orange in Arroyo Grande, CA. At my sons home while visiting this last June I found the spectacular bougainvillea. Then, an orange tree caught my eye. Why not put the two together in the sun. A little creative retouching and you see the result. I love the colors. The sharpness of this Carl Zeiss lens adds to the image.
Three separate images were used at +-1EV combined in Nik HDR Efex Pro software in Apple Aperture as a plugin. Aperture retouching tool was used to clone out the three supports used to suspend the orange above the table top. Full morning sun with no modifiers. ISO 200, Aperture Priority at f/5.6 to throw the background out of focus.
