Image 7 sunday 6.3.2011 in my goal to do a image a week I am a day late :)

Simon and I had a great couple of hours playing around with flowers and things from my house to try our skills we had got some balck cloth as a background and tried macro and extension tubes.

This is one of my orange Geum just fading and going over I loved the tuffty back of it as it bent its head.

Nikon D90 -18 105 Vrlens

Extension tube 12mm
FL 105mm
F. 5.6
Exps 1/640
ISo 3200

Tripod ( still would rather hand hold my camera)
very low light, 12 mm extension tube.

Processed in photshop CS3 levels and crop from right. Then into efex pro 3 tweak into tonal contrast to lift the petals and fluffy area, then dark and light.

A Magpie when it comes to photography I capture anything and everything that captures my eye and lens. A beginner in this field I love how the ordinary becomes less ordinary.

    this makes for an intriguing image karen… i LOVE the composition, the negative space, the colours mysteriousness of the subject

  • Thank you Carol for your lovely comment and you find it intriguing it is my fading Geum petals drooping down and you have this wonderful tuft of green. I hardly did much to the image but loved the feel of it just had something :)

    Great detail Karen but it’s the muted light set against that jet black background that is really impressive.
