Pink Tulips for Mother’s Day.

The Golden coins art to show how precious mother’s are, I know I need more gold than this.

Camera Nikon D700 with 50mm f/1.4 Lense.
ISO 100, 1/5th sec @ f/11.0. Tripod Mounted.

Picture Making Details.
From the original image below. I duplicated it in lightroom, cleaned up dust spots, opened in PS5, duplicated layer, adjusted levels, added two textured layers, erased some of the textures using the mask brush, opened the original layer again, put it on top and using multiply blending mode to reveal more colour, texture and clarity.

Then back in Lightroom a final touch, I added a vignette. Uploade for you all to enjoy and hopefully purchase for Mother’s Day:-)

    Splendid shot Don, I must admit you had me worried for a second, I suddenly had this sinking feeling that I had missed mothers day, it would explain a lot. I must have done something else! great work. regards mark.

  • Don’t worry Mark, it’s not for a few weeks yet. But it’s comeing soon:-) So make sure you remember. I know I always get in trouble for forgetting and need to buy some flowers and chocs, but hay, then I can photograph them. LOL
