About the Image(s)

This image was captured this summer at Kenilworth park and Aquatic gardens in WDC.
I was experimenting Multiple exposure in camera . Lot of Fun.
I am not really sure if I took 2 or 3 pictures to create this one . I usually take one picture out of focus filling the frame , and one shot in focus of my main subject . and another one to add some interesting texture . No ICM here . No Photoshop either.
I am new with this technique but I really enjoy playing with . This picture made me happy and I hope you ‘ll like it . Any feedback is always welcome .
ISO 200 F/8 1/125 sec Canon 5D Mark III EF 70-200mm

Wow! I love the imagination and creativity. I can't wait to try this technique for in-camera multi-exposures. As I have stated before, I think what separates a photographer from the crowd is imagination. Congrates on a wonder piece of art. I love the soft pastels and for me the composition is spot on.   Posted: 10/06/2020 12:08:57

I like this a lot. For me, it is a bit overexposed. I toned it down a bit.   Posted: 10/07/2020 08:47:07

Some photographers say that in an image less is better, and I think that it is true in this case. As well as I that your technique sounds very interesting but, again, I think that right now, in my opinion, there are too many details in the image. For the little I know that technique is mostly useful for some close up and with lenses that do not have a very good depth of field. What I would have done with this shot I would have go lower on my knees, place the flower on the lower right "third" of the photogram, using, possibly a shorter lens, increase the area above the flower, giving to it more breathing room and try to pull out more of the delicate color of the flower. Only my personal opinion.   Posted: 10/07/2020 13:21:20

Regine, I love your creativity and your imagination of this photo but I'm sorry, in my opinion it is too busy.   Posted: 10/07/2020 18:35:15

Regine, your camera technique sounds interesting and fun to do. Very creative! The only thing I would do is change the composition and background colors just to see how it looks. Crop off some of the flower stem and add more lily pads at the top putting the flower in the lower right corner, as Gabriele suggested. Then soften the green colors since they seem to overpower the soft pinks in the lily. I do like the texture you created and if the background is soften it may not appear so busy. Just a thought... Beautifully done!   Posted: 10/10/2020 14:59:23
