Macro Mode on my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P10, under the daisies. I'm unsure of the other specifics.
Did you edit the pic?
I wish there is more back light to really enhance the flower as it will get lit up. With the cloudy weather you may get really black and white effect, but the slight tint of the color will make it really unique.
No. The only thing that I have done to this photo is put my name on it. I will edit it however suggested. Are you trying to suggest that the sky be brighter and the bottom of the daisy darker?
i like the luminosity as it is, really like the edge between the flower and clouds. the petals look like they've trapped the skylight inside of them.
i think it would be nice if the stem was more if focus, or if there was more stuff in a blurred foreground. cool stuff though
*double take* oh, it's not a B+W. the dim colors work!
Oh no, I don't mean that. I'm not a fan of editing my photos. I take them as they are.
As for now I just think there could be more distinction between the subject and the background. The value of the picture is generally close, so it would have been nice if the sunlight was stronger.
Rockin! Another Indy area photog! Howya doin?! I'm down in Greenwood! :thumbsup:
I'm doing well. I'm in Greenfield!
Groovy! :thumbsup: Getting ready to head out to the fireworks at the Circle. Definitely taking the camera for that one!
The problem is too much backlight. Fill flash would have properly exposed the flower and allowed the current background exposure as well.
Is your camera capable of "fill flash"?. fill flash will eliminate sillouetting when the background has a higher light intensity than the subject.
If you want to save this picture, selective editing the flower is an option.
I submitted it to another forum and was shown a nice way to mask it in photoshop and add some natural daisy yellow to the bottom. It ended up looking much better. Thanks for the advice!
would you share, plz?
is it the "select contrasty channel, set as layer mask, dodge+burn" way? i read about that one in here a few weeks ago, don't think i have all the bugs worked out yet.
right now i'm using a combo of that method and plain b+w brush masking
always looking for better ways to do the same old stuff in photoshop :shock:
did you replace the original pic with an updated one? still looks good
