Lavender-colored Ranunculus in a Planter in Chicago, Illinois (2019-04-16 13-59-18a)
The plant was growing in one of the large planters the city keeps along Broadway Avenue in Chicago, Illinois (Edgewater).
The photo was taken with a Nikon Coolpix P7700 camera. Editing was done using ACDSee Ultimate 2019. I cropped the image, adjusted the exposure -.66 eV, adjusted the lighting and raised the contrast and clarity. Then I adjusted the levels. It made the flower a bit darker than it really was but I liked the way it turned out so I left it that way.
