    Greetings. Same image, two processing ideas...

    The color one:

    And the almost monochromatic:

    [​IMG]

    D200 70-200 f2.8VR , 1/30 at f/8 at 155mm with Canon 500D

    These are the first images I've posted, so hopefully, they are showing properly... Comments and preferences appreciated.

    Cheers,

    -Yamo-
     
  2. Hi Yamo, you have done it correctly. Prefer the 2nd image.

    Keep posting.

  3. Nicely done, I find these things can be tough to photograph because I never know where to focus :smile:

    Victor, thanks for the comment. The Canon 500D closeup lens (more like a filter) that I used allows for shots with only a very shallow depth of field. I didn't mention that this was taken hand held, focusing by leaning:redface: ... Uh, some luck involved.

    Cheers,

    -Yamo-
