One from the summer hanging basket. changed the background to black and cloned out one or two odd bits. These flowers are only about 15mm across
Many thanks to all who commented on yesterdays upload.
Excellent image Ray, lovely colour & detail, well presented as per usual !
Lovely image and presentation
Roy i can say this is beautiful, superb, well done, but today i am telling you something different:-
1. if you do not use tripod, you should not break the rule of thumb( the shutter speed should not be less than the focal length but here you have used 1/30 shutter speed and focal length is 42mm you should use 1/60 at this focal length that is 42mm)
2. iso 400 is not at all a good choice because it can produce noise in your image. try to use iso 100 or around this. actually f11 is a small aperture opening and this force you to use iso 400.
3. for any kind of close up work f5.6 or lower than that will be better.
( consider a situation:- you want to fill a pot with water and you open a tap.
the pot = your image(that you want to take and see through a view finder)
the water = the light(that you need to expose your image properly)
the tap = the shutter(that you want to open for a certain time to fill the pot or to capture the image with proper exposure)
the size of the tap = the aperture opening(large f number means small aperture opening)
so it is a math and always calculate and execute.
although a vote to your image for a good ps work.
A well captured shot, Ray, lovely colours and great work.
Like your choice of bk colour which works well with the flower colour. Not an easy flower I find to do full justice to, but this is very pretty, especially with the lovely wterdrops.
Superb image Ray.Lovely texture on the petals.
A good comp Ray,
