Purple (Three Photographs)

I took these just off the muddy bank of a lake. There was a lot of vegetation and these flowers stood out. I made modest exposure adjustments, sharpened them, removed noise and added a bit of detail and contrast. No special filters, no texture, just the flowers. In situations like this it is easy to process these to look like flowers in the shop and not in the fields. Purple is not a natural color; it’s a composite of red and blue. Purple is also the color associated with royalty, mystery and magic. Royalty is not what it used to be and there are fewer mysteries in the world than there were, but we can still experience the magical.
