About the Image(s)

Specs: Nikon D5000, Tamron 60mm Macro, f16, 1/90s, ISO 200, Monopod, Natural Light

Captured in 2013 at an arboretum in a neighboring city. Slightly blurred the background, and added some sharpening to the flower. Finally added some targeted dodging and burning to give more dimensionality to the flower. Suggestions?

I am loving the placement of the flower in the frame. the contrasting colors and the linear patterns add interest.   Posted: 09/11/2023 13:42:35

well, i would either add pigment to that bright part of the pink leaf that is folded, and maybe increase the blur in the background on the right side of the flower.   Posted: 09/15/2023 12:43:41
