    1) I did a lot of post processing work and blurred out the background.

    2) Fake roses I found laying around the house, once again a lot of post processing, adjusting contrast, levels and saturation.

    3) For this one, I used natural light coming through the window and didn't do any post processing

    4) Changed the sky from whitish color to black and lightened up the building a little bit, also adjusted the contrast.

    5) This one was shot over the weekend. Sun was just in a perfect position and IMO shows great texture. [​IMG]


    That is all for now. Please let me know what suggestions you may have for making these shots better.

    Thank you for the tips/critique. The first image was taken by by old (5-6 years old) P&S, I really like the idea and the theme of the image, but quality sucks. The fake flowers...actually there was some red in the white flower, but adjusting saturation brought it out even more.
    Here's one that was done in a similar fashion with making background dark and taking contrast and color to an extreme:

    The image #3, that was a vase with some greens in it. I think what I could have done better is put a drape over the window to diffuse the light and turned up the exposure. When I took it, direct sunlight was hitting the object.
    I will try messing around with #4 and see if I can darken the blown out part of the building...make it more uniform with the rest of the image.
