The competition theme this month at the Photography Club of Sun City-Hilton Head is “Still Life” and I am entering a photo titled “Sunflowers” which I took just last week.  The subject of the photo is a large wine jug with sunflowers which Billie arranged a few years ago from purchases she made at Pier 1.  It sits on one of Billie’s favorite small tables in a corner of our breakfast nook.
The photo is an HDR image produced from three exposures bracketed at one f-stop apart.  I used Lightroom CC to blend the HDR exposures, and I then ran the resulting image through Viveza to balance the exposure.  Finally, I used Nik Color Effects to give it the “glamour glow” treatment.  I’m pleased with the result, and I’m hopeful that the judge will agree with me!
