Macro Week #4 – Day 1: Among The Dark.


Very disappointed that I clipped the highlights but really wanted to keep the stamen well exposed. I was aiming for a glowing, luminance effect on the flower but didn’t want to overdo it with photoshop (my go-to excuse for not learning PS).

Lightroom Experiments: Fire & Smoke.

IMG_4829-2 IMG_4829Tried to use what the shot offered here. The column of bokeh in the background looked like a column of smoke to me so I worked around that. To me it looks like a huge ash pile on top of which is a bonfire that the guy in the background is huddling close to, but is going to have a rather bad day (here’s you thinking you could view this subjectively).
