About the Image(s)

Nikon 500, Nikkor Macro 105 f/2.8mm lens, 1/640 @ f/16, ISO 100, 1 EV, Manual, Center meter , Tripod

Image was taken of a columbine growing in my garden. I laid a single blossom on a lightbox and shot down onto it using backlighting from the box and a floodlight above.

This image came from a composite of several layers of the single image, and editing in LR and PS.

Well I do appreciate the creativity you put into this image.
I like the way the petals reach out of the box you surrounded the image with. The blue background is really pretty, too.
I think this would make a really nice greeting card !   Posted: 10/13/2019 03:37:45

Christina, your creative image is impressive! I like everything about this image... I like the composition, the color and how you framed the flowers. Very, very nice!   Posted: 10/14/2019 23:48:28

I agree with Diana and Donna's comments! Well-planned use of a single blossom image to create a complex composite. The inner border with the petals crossing it adds drama and energy to the composition. I also like the light blue shadow. My only quibble is that the lefthand side of the flower composite is slightly hot; this can easily be toned down by slight burning in. Overall, nice job!   Posted: 10/18/2019 14:00:51
