"Hibiscus" Tortola - British Virgin Islands

Hibiscus photograph in Tortola, British Virgin Islands by Jerome Shaw 


The delicate blossom of the Hibiscus contrasts against the bright yellow background of the wall of my hotel. This image is all about the quality of light. With this light I could have made a very good photo of an empty beer can. Fortunately I had this sensuous tropical subject in Tortola in the British Virgin Islands.

I added a texture screen in Photoshop to this version of the image.  The screen enhances the delicate ribs in the blossom but subdues the vibrancy of the yellow background.  You can see the unadulterated version of the photo in my Art Print Composite.

This image was featured in my one man show as a 32" x 40" / 80cm x 100cm digital print. Prints available for purchase.
