Happy St Patty's Day! 2009

 

About this photo:

It's a shamrock flower--just for St Patrick's Day. Don't pinch me, I'm wearing green :-)

 

About the St Patrick's Day:

For my flickr friends who may not understand the celebration of St Patrick's Day: it is a religious holiday that turned secular and celebrates the Saint Patrick as well as Irish heritage. Shamrocks and the color green are popular attributes of Saint Patrick's Day displays. Luck (in general) and leprechauns are also symbols associated with the holiday.

 

About the process:

I adjusted the levels for a brighter green, and I sharpened the interior of the flower and petals to bring out the details. I also added higher contrast overlays and high pass overlays.
