This post is skipping one photo but thats in anticipation for Macro Week #6. This was from the passenger’s seat on the drive back from oxford visiting a family friend. The sky was hard not to photograph.
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).
Tried 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).
