Peonies provide wonderful opportunities for close-up photography with their delicate streamer like petals. Almost like flags waving in the breeze.
There was a soft warm glow within the centre of the flowers which may either be due pollen tinting or the stronger blue sky light on the outer petal tips when adjusted to more neutral whiter of the petal, causing the inner parts to become warmer with temperature adjustments.
Either way, I focused on this yellowish-orange color cast as the dominante part of the image, with its strong contrast found here. Since one primary color is the yellowish-orange I then ensured that the darker greyer background petal had a slight blue hue to act as a compliment with the yellow.
The Sugar Cane paper has a warm tone to further enhance the yellowish-orange tones.
