Chicago, Illinois (Edgewater neighborhood)

Nikon Coolpix P7700

The tree was growing in the front yard of one of my neighbors. It used to be that about 4 or 5 of my neighbors grew Hibiscus. There were a variety of colors and one even grew the “dinner plate” cultivar which has very large flowers. I was pleasantly surprised when I came across this tree when I was out walking my dog this afternoon.

Editing was done using ACDSee Ultimate 2019. First I cropped the image to a 16:9 ratio. Then I adjusted the lighting and increased the contrast, clarity and saturation. I adjusted the levels, sharpened a bit and reduced the noise. Lastly I added a vignette.
