Wild flower 2 Ways

Post by minniev » Thu Apr 19, 2018 7:26 pm

Both are fairly significantly edited but following different routes. The first is true color. Both of them are shot and edited by an old lady with a hopefully temporary visual impairment so don't take for granted that I saw exactly what you're seeing, tell me.

I hear three ways is more fun. I wouldn't know. I'll leave that for the younger generation. :lol:

I like both. The true color is lovely, nice, extremely shallow selective focus and great bokeh. The antiqued version is very convincing. If one had not seen the original one could easily accept that the second is true vintage. (OK)

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Thanks Chuck. The antique version is a mystery to me too, I could not replicate it as it was experimental stumbling and I am not sure what all went Into it. Not unusual for my rambling.

I love the first one, and then I happened to see the second one. Now I don't love the first one so much...

Thanks Piet. I still don’t know exactly what I did to end up with the second one.
