This morning I posted a photo of a mustard plant still in bud. Here’s the whole enchilada – wild mustard in bloom.

Both shots were taken on the banks of Cheadle Lake in Lebanon, Oregon.

This photo I ran through an auto adjust filter with the program Photo Explosion.

I don’t often use the auto adjust, but I’m glad I tried it with this photo. I was pleasantly surprised at the addition of all the blues, where before there was only yellow bokeh and a hint of purplish-brown.

The photo then needed a little brightening, which I did with a lightening filter.
