About the Image(s)

This image was captured this summer at Kenilworth park and Aquatic gardens in WDC.
Again I was experimenting Multiple exposure in camera . Lot of Fun.
This time I took 3 pictures to create this one . I usually take one picture out of focus filling the frame ( leaf) and one shot in focus of my main subject ( here the flower) and another one to add some interesting texture ( grass) . 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 400 F/5.6 1/800 sec 200mm with Camera Canon 5D Mark III and Canon lens EF 70-200mm

I think that what you have done works and that this is a lovely image with a soft color palliate that works to create a sense of calmness and serenity. I used Nik Viveza to take it in another direction. My only suggestion would be to try a vignette crop more tightly and place the subject on a slight angle.   Posted: 11/05/2020 16:37:04

Regine, you realized another interesting image. As an old photographer I've hard time to fully understand some post processing image, but here it looks that you've mastered the process. However, I think that the process you are using needs some fine tuning. The colors of your image look nice with a good chromatic scale. I think that they need som sparkles. I think they tend to be not as bright they look. I tried the correct your image a little bit. On the composition side to my taste the leave you added it seams a little out of the place. Keep working on your technic. You are doing well.   Posted: 11/06/2020 01:36:47

I think this would make a great accent to a lobby or large office. For me the colors are soothing and certainly not overbearing. The use of multi-exposure is quite creative. I like the balance of complimentary green and orange. I am impressed with how you've embraced the multi-exposure technique. I've done a little and it certainly changes how you look at possible subjects. The image is well composed and the soft pastels contribute to a sense of calm. Be careful with too tight a crop. If you decide to print and hang you need to leave room for the frame or matting. A lesson learned the hard way. I'd hang this one in my office. Well done.   Posted: 11/08/2020 07:41:07

Regine, please correct me if I am wrong. This photo is all one photo. You take three shots all done in the camera and can only be post processed as one photo. Is that correct?

For me I think it's still a bit too busy. I would love to try this technique with only two photos not three. Just to see the difference. Maybe the lotus bud and the spidery flower together. I do love the colors also.   Posted: 11/16/2020 16:59:18

Regine, I think this is a bright, colorful picture. The subject flower has sharp details against the nicely blurred background. I have not tried taking multiple exposures in my camera yet. Although I like seeing what you are doing and will have to give it a try one day. Great job!   Posted: 11/23/2020 15:12:11
