Any thought?

Postby English_Wolf » Mon Nov 20, 2017 2:31 am

I shot this flower a long time ago (5/6 years) and I am just getting around to it.

Camera was a 800e, Lens 105, F11, ISO 800, S 1/320
Original is slightly over exposed, shot raw.
PP ACR + B&W layer - Center cropped - Reduced to 900px (PM standard) - Exported as PNG. No other PP.

While there may be not much to work with, do you have any any issue with this?

Nothing holds my eye here; the center flower, for my eyes, is not sharply focused so I wander and don't settle. And the blurred yellow flowers in the background are too obvious because of their light color. Don't know what you could do with this other than what you have done. Only my opinion, though. Matt

Perhaps you can share what the thought process and what you would like to achieve with this image. Perhaps then we can give you better input than random thoughts.

There are no yellow flowers here. Everything is part of the same flower.

A more distant version, different angle...

I do have my answer thought.

Without the details, I thought this was coral shot underwater. It is amazing how similar it looks! S-
