Day 58 - Refreshment


My mom celebrated her 62nd birthday this week so we surprised her at work by bringing her some refreshing blossoms to brighten her office. Orange is absolutely one of my favorite colors so I fell in love with these flowers.

In LR I adjusted the exposure, brightness, contrast and clarity and that was pretty much it. (ISO 800 f/5.6  1/10ss)
