Good to Wow Edit: Orange Plant 09.30.11

For my edit for the Good to Wow Challenge - Orange my goal was to bring out the orange of this still yet to be identified plant. I wanted to go with a clean edit or an HDR edit after reading Ashley's post. I downloaded a Lightroom preset she recommended, but I didn't really like the look. So I went with a clean edit and adjusted most of the basic settings. Then I shifted the orange and green hues to bring them out more. I like how it warmed up the photo and made the orange pop. I would love to hear your thoughts and critiques!

Settings: ISO 200, 55mm, ss0.4sec, f/7.1 (full manual on tripod)

Edited with Adobe Lightroom

Linking up with Good to Wow: Edit. Check out the amazing before and afters! 


  1. Your edit just pops - nicely done.

  2. Your edit has a lot more warmth to it.

  3. I like what you've done - very autumnal!

    I think those are rose hips... the bits of the rose left behind after the petals fall off?


Thank you for leaving your thoughts! I love reading your comments and critiques.
