Picture of Manchurian "Miss Kim" Lilac Buds

Shot Taken: April 25, 2001
300 x 400, 600 x 800, 1200 x 1600

With everything in our yard starting to come back to life, I decided to try for some "bud shots", and see what I could come up with.

What I got was one of my best shots ever, in my opinion. This looks like it was painted, especially at the larger sizes (click on one of the links to see more details). This picture is of a bud on a young "Miss Kim" Manchurian Lilac, at least two weeks before it opened.

The buds look like grapes, or raspberries, don't they? Weird.

I didn't do anything to it (no manipulation in PhotoShop, or anything like that) to get this "painted" effect. It's all natural.
