Zinnia Flower – 3 variations

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.

For this image I used the 'Clarity Booster' preset in Macphun's Luminar for Windows (beta) to clean it up a bit.

Zinnia (Emulated Infrared) (2017-08-04 14-41-11b)

I used Affinity Photo 1.6 to apply a technique which emulates infrared photography on an image produced without using any type of infrared filter. If you have the program, there is a video which describes the technique here.© 2017 Gary J. Sibio. All rights reserved
