More fruit blossoms! This is an apple blossom from our Fuji apple tree. I shot this with my 100mm lens and it was hand held. Settings were: f/5, 1/1000 sec., ISO 100. Just adjusted levels and added a round of Topaz Detail. Hope you are having a great weekend!
White narcissus just before blooming. These were in complete shade. Processed in Photoshop Elements 6 with unsharp mask and burning. Have a good week everyone!
Camera settings: Canon EOS Rebel T1i, F/6.3, 1/125 sec., ISO 1600, focal length 100 mm. No flash.
Another of my new irises. I had to take this shot at an angle as the recent rains had knocked it down. Photo taken in early evening with overcast skies. Processed in Elements 6 with High Pass and dodged and burned.
Camera settings: F/ 5.6, 1/800 sec., ISO 800, focal length 55 mm. No flash.
One of my favorite flowers, cosmos. I love their translucence and their tissue paper look. Photo taken at local garden center. This photo was processed with adjusting levels, applying Topaz Simplify watercolor adjusted and dodging and burning the result.
Camera settings: F/3.5, 1/75 sec., ISO 54, focal length 6.3 mm. No flash.
After adjusting levels and adding a high pass filter, I did a lot with my Wacom tablet and inked out some background and did some highlighting. Then I did some extensive burning and dodging. Love the smell of these freesias!
Camera settings: F/4.5, 1/210 sec., ISO 64, focal length 6.3. No flash.
The blossom is really white and I thought the contrast came out a little better in b/w. I don’t even know what this is as it is a shoot coming from the rootstock of one of our ash trees. I had very narrow depth of field which can be both good and bad. . . Camera settings: F/5.0, 1/100 sec., ISO 100 and focal length 43 mm.
