Stormy Flowers

One of my personal rules of photography is that I try very hard to never edit a photo beyond what a realistic view of the actual scene would be. Some pictures need more post-editing than others, but I've never been a fan of blowing out the saturation, or other common photoshop habits people have. I try to use the framing of the initial capture as the main editing effort, while using Photoshop to touch things up and convey what I felt when I was there seeing it in person.

This photos is a bit of an exception to that, in that the sky was pretty much just blue. I added the clouds and the moon, as I wasn't really happy with the photo I'd gotten of the flowers on their own. So, this isn't what it looked like when I was there. 🙂 However, I liked the contrast of the yellow flowers on the dark clouds better than the plain blue sky.
