[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just some purple flowers I found while walking around.

PP crop, levels, darken backound, sharpen, canvas frame. Lovely purple from nature so I left it as is, no saturation.

I tried and tried to clone out the blade of grass to the lower right. Always ended up with an unacceptable amount of 'clonies' afterwards that screamed photoshop. If anyone out there is a guru of cloning and has some advice I would be happy to try it out. In the log run though it was a lesson in composition and i'll just modify nature a bit next time. I think this type of shot will eventually lead to me purchasing a macro lens. Anyone have a favorite macro lens to plug? Thanks and I hope you enjoy it.

Perfect picture, it is Ixilirion tataricum. Ori

Hi Sean!
I don't see any need to remove that blade of grass; it does not distract.
You have shot this beautiful exotic wild flower very well.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Sean,Great DOF and excellent colors. I'll try to clone out the blade of grass later today and let you know if I had any luck.
