Flowers On A Lightbox by Gunter Haibach

August 2022 - Flowers On A Lightbox

About the Image(s)

Shot at 1/10, f7.1, ISO200, 60mm lens, on a lightbox with a tripod. Post processing in RAW Conversion, Elements, Topaz Studio.
My intent was to show the fine details in the petals, but at the same time saturate the colours somewhat. Used Blending Modes and Gradient Maps mostly.
Toyed with replacing the white background, but whatever I tried, I lost some of the fine detail. Have another version of this with less saturated colours which is also a 'keeper', but prefer this one.

Wow, love the technique. Are those azaleas? The petals are translucent. I think you got the ideal combination of details and the saturated colors. I know those stamens are coming up at you, but the dof is preserved.   Posted: 08/05/2022 19:32:41

This is really pretty! It reminds of a kaleidoscope. Very cool idea.   Posted: 08/05/2022 22:34:21

A very well done image Gunter. I love the flower details and the colors. Not sure how you got multiple flowers on top of each other to be so translucent, but maybe you accomplished that via software or flower parts? It is well balanced and symmetrical.

This is really pretty. It was fun to play with this image in Photoshop. Here I adjusted levels a bit. I'm not sure it is any better but I had fun.   Posted: 08/08/2022 14:19:33
