About the Image(s)

This was taken at a garden near us, in an open field on a rather blustery day. Taken with a Canon 70D Tamron 70-300 @ 190mm Iso 400 f/5 1/4000 spot metering. Even at that speed I could not stop the slight blur. Thank you Topaz Sharpen AI.
After all the mormal adjustments in Camera Raw, In PS duplicated the layer, brought it into Topaz Sharpen AI, added a BW filter, put a sunlight overlay @48% on top and using the Quick select tool, selected the flower and the buds. Then placed the BW filter on top of the overlay and painted the flower and buds color back in.

Final image is excellent. With this kind of light from top left, our mind is trained to think differently ...what about having the light coming from top right?
Just a thought ...   Posted: 08/02/2022 14:45:19

Hi Fred! A beautiful example of a well visualized (designed) photographic mixed medium project, or "hybrid art", where we are combining AI technology with the subject captured in plein air through the lens of the camera; combined and presented in this photographic art. Well done!   Posted: 08/03/2022 18:41:20

A lovely image. I like the composition with the flower offset and the light rays coming from the top corner. The only improvement I can suggest is just to reduce the opacity of the light rays a touch.   Posted: 08/06/2022 02:33:08

This is a very nice image. Well thought out and unique. I like that the light isn't coming straight from the corner. The minimalistic nature works really well and gives the image a serene feel. If it were mine I might remove the left lower flower as it pulls my eye away from the blossom a bit. Still, I find this to be really well done - great job!   Posted: 08/10/2022 20:09:22
