One Of A Kind #4

A Chicory flower photographed with a fast portrait lens. Another of my recent experiments using fast portrait lenses to photograph flowers and plants.

This is my day 28 contribution to Becky’s October Squares challenge on the theme of Kind.

A Chicory flower photographed on the side of a road on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

I like the delicate blues in the flower but I found the greens in the background overpowered the blues. So I desaturated the background until it was close to how I remembered the flower appearing when I took the photo.
