Will it bring me luck? | Four-leaf clover

About this photo:

Several months ago, I promised someone that I would take a photo of a four leaf clover for them. Clovers with four leaves appear fairly frequently around here...maybe there is nuclear waste in the soil, who knows. Anyway, I forgot all about that promise until I spotted this one while taking the previously posted photo of the "cute bug".

 

I wish that I had focused on something other than the center of clover, because none of the leaves are totally crisp. Maybe next time I come across a four-leaf clover I will remember that.

 

About the process:

I added a high-contrast overlay. I also used the auto-levels feature of photoshop to adjust the levels, then I used a mask to reveal the original greener version where the clover is. That combination seemed to make the clover stand out.
