About the Image(s)

For this month I photographed some wild cone flowers while in Wisconsin. The lighting was not ideal as it was in the middle of the day (around 1 pm) on a very sunny day so I had to increase contrast when I took the initial raw photo. So when editing this photo I tried to play around with lighting a bit to improve the color and remove some of the bright spots on the petals. I also cropped the image to remove some of the background as I found that to be a bit distracting. I also think that I was able to improve my issues with pixelation from previous images as I was able to get very close and I have been working with my phones focusing abilities to avoid that issue. I do think I may have over corrected for color as I feel that some of the stems I think the background have taken on yellow undertones but I am unsure if that is distracting or necessarily a bad thing.

Your photography is improving! Very nicely done. On my screen, it looks a bit too saturated in your sky and flowers, but that's an easy fix. Good job!   Posted: 08/02/2022 20:59:08

Well focused main subject with an interesting and maybe a bit too bright background.   Posted: 08/06/2022 10:00:16

Your main subject is very sharp and stands out well from the background. I like the saturated colors in this case.   Posted: 08/08/2022 10:48:43

Good job of bringing your focus to the large main flower. It is very sharp with good detail. I like your color palette.   Posted: 08/08/2022 16:22:58

Better and better Jacob.
As with any image, the selection of the subject and the background are crucial. In this case, I would have probably moved a bit to the left, removing the twigs above the flower.
Great focus on the flower.
