Isn't this incredible? A Poppy, self seeded and growing in my English Garden, something that could be described as a weed, and the delicacy of the stamen and developing seed head just bowl me over.
And my learning process when it comes to processing my digital images. I use the Gimp, an Open Source Image editing software, and yesterday I was looking into tone mapping when I discovered a tutorial about the Retinex filter. ( www.fabiopani.it/?id=1246 ) This image had that applied to it, and the results are far better than my normal process of haze removal.
