    I picked up a bunch of flowers today in clear cellophane and I was trying to photograph them through the cello with the water droplets. This is the result.

    Increase contrast a smidge increase black point a smidge and the colors will pop.
    Looks like fun, keep experimenting!

    Thanks Shockey, I will give it a try.

    I am new to my camera, and the night before I had been taking night shots, I *thought* that when I turned the camera off it would restore the normal settings and didn't realize until later the night settings were still on for these cello/flowers. :er: duh.

    Just a tip, which you just learned the way we all did.
    When starting each day always check you camera settings to make sure they are where you want them.
    That is one of the hardest things to remember with DSLRs is to remember to check and reset your settings as photographic opportunity comes up.

    Its great to see someone being creative, whether you are new or not.

    I'm sure we all have stories where we forgot settings. Like shooting an event with flash at ISO 1600.

    You're right, contrast and black point make a difference, and I've been playing with Lightroom - so much fun. A 4.99 bunch of daisies has kept me busy for hours. ;)

    Now decrease the exposure just a bit and you are there.
