My poor Plumeria did not like our freezing weather. This one was a lovely 15 foot specimen that burned back badly last year during a freeze. The one small limb that survived took a hit with the hard freezes this year. Not sure if this one will survive.  I was playing around with different filters and blend modes and added a texture.  And being interrupted and distracted a few times I don’t know how I ended up with this image!

    Great capture – I like the colors in the blurred background. Also like how gnarled and sort of chiseled the branch looks.

    I really like the background. You’ve created a really great effect, even if you don’t know how you did it.

    I also like the sombreness of this but was surprised to hear that it was a 15″ plant as I was going to comment on it being a great Macro Shot, it has a strong feeling of that for me!

    wonderful shot and I am really loving the processing done to this! I’m w/ Ron, I can’t believe the size it used to be…..I hope it comes around next year (I want to see another pic of it in it’s prime)! 🙂

    What a nice image. I agree that you did a great job even if you are not sure what you did!
