The zinnia plant was in one of the gardens at the Grosse Point Lighthouse (2601 Sheridan Road, Evanston, Illinois). Once a federally owned lighthouse, it is now a city park for the city of Evanston, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. The first photo is a pretty straightforward version, just cleaned up a bit. The other two are the result of my playing around with it.
The photo was taken with a Nikon Coolpix P7700 camera.
