Secret Garden

by tagermer

When I was visiting the National Arboretum in Washington, DC, I took the opportunity to walk through the Azalea Grove. It was just after peak season. Some of the flowers were definitely in bloom, but a few plants were past their prime. I found this one garden, where there was a park bench under a trellis, the closest to a manicured garden as anything in the grove. This one will definitely be made into a photographic sculpture, one of my cubic panoramas. I used three exposures and some rather heavy HDR processing to get what I eventually liked.

Here is the flattened cube:

And, here are two of the stereographic projections:
