About the Image(s)

This is the centre portion of the artifical Poppy flower (Papaver somniferum) showing its stamen and pistil. This was taken using my Samsung mobile phone last week. I moved the phone just an inch between the two shots. The camera setting were f/2.4, 1/1070 sec, ISO-50 with a focal length of 4mm and center weighted average. I first auto-aligned the images in SPM, then trimmed it to the present composition. The pair image was transfered to photoshop further editing like levels, saturation, denoice and unsharp mask.

Interesting image. Accept for what appears like cloth on the upper part this really looks real. I like it.   Posted: 06/04/2021 13:30:36

Interesting. I think I'dve come in tighter on the center of the flower.   Posted: 06/04/2021 16:29:22

I tried to keep the pistil in 1/3 position.   Posted: 06/04/2021 23:48:28

Mohanan, Interesting picture and good color. The upper part of the image seems very soft to me. Therefore it seems to lack depth of field.   Posted: 06/11/2021 10:56:14

Full of vibrant colour, they say that red and yellow attracts the eye and this certainly does. Interesting to see your image taken with a mobile phone   Posted: 06/17/2021 11:28:25
