Rose of Sharon Tricolor by Jon Joyce

November 2020 - Rose of Sharon Tricolor

About the Image(s)

Inspired by Dorinda’s dog portrait employing a bright vignette a few months ago, I tried the vignette on this image of an unusual Rose of Sharon blossom this past summer. I liked the effect on a single blossom and wonder how others might respond. F/5.6, 1/250

I like seeing something a little different. The f/5.6 aperture seems to have given more than adequate depth of field, but it is a little hard to check since the pixel dimensions of the image are rather small.   Posted: 11/02/2020 19:06:21

Lovely presentation with great detail, soft colors, sharp detail in the center of the bloom, no distractions and a great frame and the of soft white framing.   Posted: 11/05/2020 05:07:15

Absolutely lovely capture of the flower I think it would be even more dreamy if you clone out the leaves   Posted: 11/05/2020 16:21:50

Very nicely done. The soft colors, square crop and vignette work together. As you referenced, I am not reluctant to put a white vignette on an image, but if you are going to use it for competition, the judges are 100% against it. But, I say, use what pleases you and what suits how it is going to be used.

Nice capture on the flower. I like the white vignette, but I would pull back on it a little. Have it be a little more subtle.   Posted: 11/11/2020 12:54:43
