Fire Wheel Blues
Fire Wheels,Coreopsis sp., are native Texan wildflowers. Saw these in the Wetlands at Seabourne Creek Nature Park.
Tech Notes: 16-image focus bracket in a mild breeze. Fortunately the central pair stuck together, so auto-align mostly shifted & blurred the background. Auto-blend, crop out the ragged edges, clone stamp for fine-tuning to remove jagged disconnects on the stems. Velvia film simulation, no color or brightness adjustments in post. The cool background—pun intended—was my first experiment with Ambient White Balance. Turned out pretty well!
