A Little Green.....

I found this in my archives from last summer and thought I would share it with you.  I love the bright green lantana leaves in this photo - very fitting for today!


This is my first edit in Lightroom 3.   I then pulled it over into Photoshop Elements 8 and sharpened it a tad more.   Do you use Lightroom?   I have a 30-day free trial, so we'll see how it goes.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY EVERYONE!

  1. SO pretty! I love these swallowtails (and lantana is one of the few flowers I grow since they keep coming back on their own!)

  2. Really nice details with the butterfly and small flowers without losing the nice colors in the background. :)

  8. Beautiful butterfly!

    No, I do not use Lightroom. All my editing to date has been on Picnik. I bought Elements 9 about a month ago but I'm even intimated to load it onto my computer for fear of what it will do to my current storage method of photos! I neeed to read the opening chapter first!

  10. This is just beautiful. I use CS5 and have not used Lightroom very much. One of those things on my "to do" list! :-)
    This is such a beautiful photograph!

  11. Oh, I have a similar shot.....maybe I'll have to pull it out, too! My swallowtail was missing a section of its "tail," though. So beautiful....I LOVE seeing swallowtails for the first time in summer (late spring or whatever!).
