A very red flower - Amaryllis

We recently were given an Amaryllis, which was about to blossom.

It now has, magnificently and I tried to capture some of its magic, using my camera hand held, as it was tricky choosing the right viewpoint and used the Nikon 85mm F.1.4 lens wide open to capture one detail at a time. On looking at the resultant images I then felt that I wanted the best parts of two different shots and thanks to PhotoShop's layers, blending options and Smart sharpening, I got the effect I was looking for.

Next time I will use a tripod and take advantage of the latest merge layers tool.
