So, I finally took the time to play with some of the new tools and over the course of several late night customizing sessions, I managed to arrive at something I'm quite pleased with. Refreshingly simple, but effective. I released my new look into the wild last night (or was it early this morning?), so I hope you take the time to check it out:
I'm sure I'll continue to tinker with it some more in the future, but for now I'm pretty happy with it. On that note....
Each spring my wife's grandmother has a couple flower gardens that explode with a colorful rainbow of Iris flowers. Interestingly, the name "Iris" is actually derived from the Greek word for a rainbow since the many Iris species come in so many colors. I've taken a lot of pictures of these Irises during each Spring, but I was never able to capture an image that I really liked, until I captured this one earlier this Spring. The sun was low on the western horizon and the light transmitting through the petals caught my eye. This flower appeared to glow. I moved to arrange the brightly lit grass as a background, which makes the flower's colors really pop.
