About the Image(s)

The daylilies in my garden are blooming nicely. It was a cloudy,
overcast day. I kneeled down, handheld my camera, and took a shot of
the daylilies in their natural habitat. It was processed in Lightroom
and Photoshop.

Nikon Z6 II; Z 24-70 lens @ 70mm. f/5; 1/200 second; ISO 320

The overcast day provided beautiful, even lighting for your daylily with no harsh shadows. The green and magenta colors complement each other very well. The only issue I see is that portions of the background are a tad too bright and pull my eye away from the main daylily. It might also help to de-saturate the background a little especially the blurred daylily that appears a bit oversaturated. A wonderful image overall!   Posted: 07/02/2024 17:43:04

Beautiful lighting with the overcast sky. I agree with the comments David made. I would crop off the bottom half of the of the image and some on the right side. To my eye the bottom out of focus flower is not needed in the composition. I feel it competes with the main flower and pulls my eye down to that area. I also would tone down the buds in the background, so they are not so bright.   Posted: 07/12/2024 09:46:38
