Hydrangea-Picture a day #22

My wife had a baby shower this morning for a friend of ours, which of course left a few items to photograph! She had a couple of these hydrangea’s in glass jars in a few places. I liked this comp, but I think I’m might have over sharpened the leaves. I considered re-processing it, but I was torn, cause I kind of liked it this way.

Here’s the saved JPG from the RAW file:


The petals were kind of lost in the white background, so into Aperture we go:


Very glad that Aperture remembers all the edits in memory so that I can review what I did. Sometimes I know what I want to do based on the histogram, other times I just start to dabble.
