    Original- Nikon P80: f/2.8, 1/60 sec

    I was really distracted by the background even though I tried to blur it out so I tried to change it to a kinda sepia look.

    Not sure how anyone else like its, but the sepia look background really REALLY makes your eyes only focus on the rose/water droplets.

    I personally like it :)

    I like it as well - I'd be curious to see what it looks like as a selective colouration with a black & white background.

    First one needs a slight contrast boost. But very nice shots

    They are both over exposed IMO, the colors are over saturated, great subject though but with a lower exposure I think they could really make the droplets pop

    Agree with skiboarder72.

    Good composition and great post-processing.

    But a pity the flower is alittle over-exposed.

    You may need to do some EV compensation when shooting which is what I will normally do when shooting flowers in bright daylight :)

    Cheers

    That is one thing I've noticed with this camera, is that unless you bump down the exposure on the EV selector, it tends to do that. I didn't think it was TOO bad on this one, but that's why I'm having you guys take a look

    Thanks for the advise.

    The biggest problem in my opinion is that there's very little contrast. There's absolutely no real blacks in the original.
