Emerging: New & Old

130502_Emerging_Old & New by Karl Graf. The emerging new growth of this Exbury Azalea surrounds and seems to protect the old growth from last year.  I moved around to get the best position of the old growth between the towering new growth.

Post processing was also simple.  I added a little contrast and structure to the leaves as well as darkened the background using NIK Viveza.  As a final touch, I lightened the center and darkened the edges with NIK Color Efex Pro.
