Back garden, Harleston Norfolk, Uk taken in May 2010 at 7am, must of been a shot I grabbed prior to me going to work.
Today I seem to be in a B&W frame of mind when it comes to my images. I started out with a white and pale pink tipped Apple blossom and when finished it was a B&W image.
Seems to suit my mood today.
Nikon D90 18-105vr Lens
Exps 1/320 sec -0.7 step
Hand Held, AP, early morning natural light.
Cropped in Photshop CS3, then added into Efex Pro 3 colour. Added into the B&W conversion decided after a play to use dramatic contrast B&W once happy with that then used dark and light layer to darken the outside as leaves and small white buds still on show. Decided the pale buds had to go so had a go with the Clone tool in Photoshop Not had much luck with this before but as the back ground mainly all black this seemed to work better for me, faint white buds cloned out and a neater finish to over all image.
