Purple Ranunculus.

I’m still having a blast experimenting and playing with Kellie Hatcher’s B&W Film Presets.  Guess what?  They’re perfectly wonderful on macro floral images, too!!  Who knew?  IMG_3862-2IMG_3862Deep preset.  With slight adjustment to contrast slider.

IMG_3927Jasmine II preset. Slight adjustment to boost exposure. IMG_3927-2

Jasmine preset.  No adjustments.

So my bummer-news is that Trader Joe’s is no longer selling ranunculus [wiping a tear from my eye …].  I’ve loved having these gorgeous flowers adorning my desk these last several weeks.  My good news is:  I have a set of Kellie’s presets to give away this week.  Click thru for the details!

Good heavens. I'm the biggest sucker for purple. Between that and the detail, I am positively drooling.

I saw potted ranunculus at Home Depot the other day and thought of you. May have to plant some this year. ;-)

Just beautiful! I have to say I'm very partial to the deep purple versions. Very regal.

At first glance, the first photo shocked me. For some reason I thought it was a weird bug! LOL But on my second look, the color just hit me. It is gorgeous, Susan! You are so good at getting those beautiful colors to pop. Love them all!
