    Hi ya all


    Some flower shots from me. These may not be too everyones liking because I have PP them quite a bit. In the past I have taken some really bad flower pictures, so decided to go down another route. All linked to larger veiw.

    Hi holo..Number 1 and 2 are really very good excellent compositions. Although they have a Blue cast to them on my monitor did you add this in PP?

    Hi ya


    Think the blue cast may come from the tungstan WB I used.

    I really like the Tungsten WB that you used on this. Creates a great atmosphere. :thumbsup:

    That would be it. Id like to see 1 and 2 without the Tungsten WB if possible. IMHO they would be better without it.

    Cheers Alistair.

    Hi Holo..For me that last one works much better without the Tungsten WB. It really is an awesome shot.

    I rather the like the effect, but I think it only works really well on the white flower. For me, the first one of the second set is the one :thumbsup: I'll agree with Allie that the green one is nice too, but that rich blue is just too stunning to ignore.

    Cracking stuff holo :thumbsup:
    I love the very first flower. The composition is superb and the only downside is the blown highlight on the middle flower. That can be fixed though as you've proved in the greener version. Would look great on canvas imo :)
