  • Fuji + Sun, Part II

    From the Fuji FP S3100: ISO 64 f/8 1/250th/sec Macro mode 6mm Full Sun

    Some layered improvement of depth of color, as well as vignette mask to emphasize white blooms. Shadow in center was a concern, did not look better lightened.

        Very sharp, lovely color, good whites, nice "odd rule of composition". Feelings are mixed about the leaves. Not sure if they compete or enhance.

        Definitely gives me the feeling of Spring!

          Saralonde, Thanks

          Same tree last year had a single bloom with one leaf and just looked sad, so when this group showed up, I was drawn to it.

          Too many leaves, too bright, too big? At one stage I had more mask on left and bottom, made the bloom stand out, but dulled the leaves. Haven't tried crop, that green was so rich, I wanted some balance to the white. Let's see what toning it down does.

              kunaldaswani, Thank you

              In a perfect world everyone would be praised for the magic of pointing a device at a thing and producing an image the human mind interpretes as a 2D representation of that thing. The person who designed the camera I shoot with is a genius, I am a button-pusher. The technicians at Adobe do magic, I wave a pen-on-tablet, and with patience infinite, turn out a post I hope will be praiseworthy. But it's one in a thousand of praiseworthy images. And thanks for believing it is one.

                        knickers71uk,

                        Thanks! Usually I don't see results like this, having had what seems like 4 months of cloudy snowy weather. Also the lane the tree is on will be stripped for a roadway soon, and I'm trying to save what I can of the everyday wonders that will be gone shortly. The ones I hardly noticed before now.

                        (and good to see you're a Senior now!)

                            Nice crisp flowers - and I think your crop and enhancement has definitely been beneficial to the final image.

                              Jim,

                              you did a good job with your crop and touch ups.
                              But IMHO its bit underexposed. Other members can share the thoughts here.
