[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today's Theme Fire makes me really think about the posible post. Several friends were more quick with great sunsets and "Sky in fire" that was my original idea. Instead of posting another sunset I reminded about this one, taken last year and posted before in different angle. I would do a lot of things different today, but fresh experiences with lab colour mode made possible to do the PP different way.

PP: Lab mode adjustments of curves, gauss.blur channels a and b and unsharp mask in lightness channel.

Have a nice weekend.

Hi Lenka
Amazing fire tulip! I like natural color.

Hi Lenca!

Very good details, wonderful sharpness, the drops are especially fine! Burning colors indeed. Only crop a bit tight for my taste. Fantastic shot alltogether, TFS!

Best regards,
