Long Exposure, a Pop of Flash, and Some Playful Post-Processing = A Creative Exercise

The title pretty much sums it up.  Been bored with the photography lately, had to change things up a bit.  Still waiting for some good sunset/skies here in Okinawa.  Lately just a lot of rain and ugly weather.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 with 9-18mm 4.0-5.6 lens @ 9mm with shutter speed of 15 seconds.  Manually popped a flash at 1/128th power just under the flower at some point during the 15 seconds.  Processed with Lightroom (of course as always) and Perfect Effects 4 and Perfect B&W.
