Posturized Day Lily by Dick States

September 2021 - Posturized Day Lily

About the Image(s)

Took this in a friends flower garden in the town where I live. I shot this on a overcast day to eliminate too much contrast in the lighting. Full sunlight usually results with images with the highlights blown out and no detail in the shadows.

I used my 200mm macro lens with an exposure of 1.5 sec. ISO 100 -.5 step. Tripod and cable release with a polarizer in the lens. In post I used a filter called artistic poster edges.

The effect you used, Artistic Poster, is quite impressive.   Posted: 09/06/2021 11:20:55

Hi, Dick.
I like your creative aspect of the lily. It really emphasis the edge of the petals against the leaves. I am unfamiliar with Artistic poster. Does it choose the color variation for the petals? The overall effect is very attractive!

This is a filter in Elements under artistic poster edges. The filter picks the variations. I find it works well on many close-ups of flowers but not all.   Posted: 09/12/2021 13:45:21

Very interesting, Dick. First time I hear about this artictic poster edges filter. Is it coming with a recent version of Photoshop? or is it Luminar?
Anyway, I like the well balanced spread of yellow area and green area. I like the edges of the leaves as well as the flower.
The texture is superb. The framing also. Nothing to change it is excellent as it is.   Posted: 09/09/2021 16:13:01

Hi Georges.
Thanks for your comments. This is in Photoshop Elements 9 which is rather old. Its under filter, artistic, then poster edges. I like this particular filter with close ups of some larger flowers. It's one of my favorite filters.   Posted: 09/12/2021 13:53:35
