Hellebore 3

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 11 April 2013 in Plant & Nature.

Hellebores are often shy and hide there inner beauty. So, I photographed this one's outer beauty.
Taken indoors using natural light.
Added three textures by ShadowHouse and Joel Olives.

You certainly captured that sense of shyness. I love the way the flower is bending toward us and the exquisite detail of the petals. Lovingly textured (as always).
