This is my first CC request. I'm doing a 365 project, in hopes that practice will make me better at photography. This is todays picture. Not my best, perhaps, but I would love to know what you guys would have done to make it better, had you taken the picture! Or would it not be something you would have thought worth shooting all at? This is a rose and some white carnations in a wine bottle, and I took a picture. I increased the contrast, color, and warmth, all to try and bring out the rose, and clicked something called "adjustable threshold" (this is all done on Picnik ) which seemed to tone down the carnation in the background. Added a vignette, also. Taken with a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC H50. I don't remember the exact settings, I'm sorry, but I did use the macro button with a tiny bit of zoom, and the smallest number aperture value (would that be a large value setting or small?). The shutter speed was around 10, though I don't know 10 whats. It was not seconds, I can tell you that much. So, please let this noob know how bad or good it is.
