68th place (joint)
This sunflower was part of a bouquet my wife recently bought. I decided it would make a nice image if it could be made to look very old -- more like an old litho print.

Taken: Sunday, 17th June, 2012
Focal length: 50 mm
Shutter speed: 1/80 sec
Aperture: F2
ISO: 200
Notes: The image was processed in Photoshop Elements 9. After doing basic levels adjustment I did and initial black fill layer, and reduced the opacity to 25 and did some selective erasing with a soft edge brush. I then merged the layers and used the PSE 'Sponge' art filter over the entire image. Then did a final black fille layer with opacity at 20 and selective erasing before merging the layers and saving the image.
