Cosmic Photo Challenge: If You Could See Into the Heart of Me

This is posted to K’lee and Dales’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: If You Could See Into the Heart of Me.

I started with a color photo of a dark purple Poppy anemone, converted it to black and white and then started playing around with color, light, intensity, definition, etc. I’ve only recently learned how to manipulate things like the curves, saturation, etc., and I wanted to see just what I could accomplish with this photo. It was enormous fun.
