Tonality and Light

The light hit this flower just right. In post processing I first wanted to further mute the background where the light had fallen off and ensure no distractions. I then wanted to bring out many of the details and used a Nik filter to do that. I find with Lightroom and other programs that auto settings tend to compensate for problems like dark photos, even when this is not the case. Inevitably in shooting animals at a distance, environmental issues like mist or moisture will wash out a photograph. In fact in many of my photographs I tone down the highlights for just this reason.
