Annual Combination Platter

Platt Hill Nursery

Carpentersville, Illinois 42.127053, -88.336850


July 2, 2020


Usually, when I photograph plants, I try to photograph the information sign to be able to give you the species, name, etc. In this case, the sign was on the bottom I simply held my camera down low and took a picture. I looked at the image just to make sure it was sharp, and moved on. When I got home, I discovered that the sign wasn't very helpful. Then I decided that "Annual Combination Platter", actually is an OK name for the picture.


Also, here's a challenge. I actually Photoshopped into the picture something from another image. I usually take several shots with different perspectives, views, etc. So I copied an element from one of those other pictures into this one. I almost never do this, but this image cried out for it, and it gave me a little more knowledge about Photoshop.


Can you spot the composited element?


[update - the yellow flower in the lower right is the added element. I felt the need for a yellow flower there. So I looked at the other pictures and only found one with a clean, unobscured yellow flower. And a little selection work in Photoshop and presto!]
