Marsh Marigold

Latin name: caltha palustris

Here's another shot of Marsh Marigolds. Note the darker green in this image. I tried upping the colour contrast a bit. The results are quite nice. It's a fine line, finding the divide between colour accuracy and the luxiouriance of rich colour. I do find that bright lighting can wash colours out and that working with colour contrast and brightness can go a long way toward re-balancing things to be more like you actually saw them.

What I like about this shot is that the brilliance of the yellow Marsh Marigold flowers is balanced by the richness of the flowers' leaves. A nice effect.
