RAW stocks

A small stock of raw footage is always lying on my laptop. My florist had been able to give us a few flowers, some of which were sacrificed after a couple of days on my lightbox. These days in a hospital I benefit while the healing remains to be seen.

The tulip offered a wild confusion of petals. Unfortunately, it was monochrome orange.

The amaryllis showed an incredibly intense red. I managed to show the intensity best on a black background than on a white one. I use the inversion of the L-channel in Lab color mode.

I like to make things visible the naked eye isn't able to see. That's part of my profession as a radiologist, too.
