Looking Down

This was taken at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona in the fall of 2008.  As you can see, I was looking straight down on this patch of succulents.  Wish I could tell you the name of this plant but I’m still learning my desert plants.

This is cropped from the original photo. I tried to make it have more depth and narrowed the pattern a bit since I felt that the original had too many of this same plant in it.  By cropping it, you can see more space between the plants and thus (hopefully) more depth.

  1. Judi! I really like your post-processing. It does accent depth and space. Cacti are one of my favorite plants. If I could, I’d have my yard full of them, but they don’t survive well here.

  2. Ouch!!! Got to close. Great depth, as we look upon this chaotic textured pattern.

  3. I think you captured the depth in this perfectly, I also love the close up shot, it just shows so many more details.

  4. I love the cactis, even though you know they are prickly, it still makes you want to touch them. That is what photos should do. You do show depth here. so you accomplished your task. Sometimes the angles can show depth as well.
