The Flower and Garden Festival once again helped send me in a direction of a shot I may have otherwise ignored. The Lady and the Tramp topiaries brought me to this particular spot and I loved being able to utilize some of the Italy pavilion in the background here to expand the shot. A head on shot obviously wouldn’t have been as exciting. I shot this was my ultra wide Nikon 14-24 2.8 which really helped make this shot possible. There was some blue lighting here that was pretty rough looking which I corrected while leaving the good looking blues intact. I used three total shots for this, as the highlights were very strong in places. The two additional shots, which I blended using luminosity masks helped to tone down the strong highlights especially on the topiaries.
