This image was made in Balboa Park in San Diego, CA during a groupshoot organized by the San Diego DSLR group. Having shot there many times before, I went looking for unique photo opportunities and found this lilly near the edge of a very iconic pond in front of the arboritum. What makes this shot unique is that is was shot after official sunset and I used my Maglight mini flashlight to "paint" the flower with light during the long exposure. This light painting gives the lilly a ghostly, surreal feeling. I then played with the white balance temperature and tint to render the overall image in purple.
