This is so pretty! I always love that first bit of sunlight that breaks through the thick clouds after a rain. The color of this flower really stands out against that stormy sky.
Love the effect. how did you achieve it, or was that natural, post rain light?

I must admit this took quite a bit of work to get right. Originally it had the lovely glow of a setting sun to light it but I felt that the flower didn’t stand out enough. So give it more impact I desaturated the greens and yellows a bit, did the opposite to the red channel.
Then I brought out the cloud in the sky by duplicating the layer and darkening the top one before using a layer mask to expose the ground detail underneath. Resize and unsharp and save and upload! Hope that makes sense!
