All of these were taken with D200, 17-55 hand held. I am working on DOF and technique. I am not sure of composition, the rule of 3rds and such. Stiff CC is more than welcome.
Seneca,Is that a type of sunflower? Like a mini hybrid? The second sunflower with the total background blurred is awesome.
I appreciate the input. I am not to good at curves, masks and especially PS.I like the first two, but the cacti just isn't doing anything for me. I PSed the image and did a simple slight S curve to add contrast. Then I used the warming filter(85) at 25%..to give it some warmth. Try that on that second Cacti image.
Hey Herschel,I appreciate the input. I am not to good at curves, masks and especially PS.
I just put a little usm in NX2 and go.
I see what you are saying. It looks good. I will play with this. Thanks.Hey Herschel,
Here is what I was talking about earlier:
It's not much, and you really can't tell until you put it against the other. But it is just a bit warmer. The curves layer was just the preset linear contrast selection in the Curves adj. tool. and the warming filter was a photo filter adjust layer with the warming filter(85) set to 15%.
Hope you like.
No problem. There are quite a few people over on the retouching side that can help. and there are a ton of tutorials on that info helped me thread up in the sticky section in this forum. I'm working on making parts of it better organized, but work keeps getting in the way.:smile:I see what you are saying. It looks good. I will play with this. Thanks.
