I appreciated the comments from my previous upload, and such appreciate your comments on this take.
So I went back to my original RAW capture and did the following stuff using Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 under Microsoft Windows 7.
As it RAW I began working in "Camera-in-the-RAW"
- Set Temperature to 5150 K
- Set Tint to + 33
- Recovery 100
- Blacks 100
- Brightness +100
- Contrast + 100
then opened in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7
- Resized to 600 x 401 pixels
- Using the Unsharp Mask
- Amount 85
- Radius 1.0
- Threshold 4
- Last saved in JPEG for upload to WEB GALLERY
When looking at one can now see the total power available from RAW captures even of an old CAMERA and old applications.
Like mentioned already the lighting of this flower was done using the NEEWER RING 48 and rested on the SILK able 300 dx tripod, and along with the both NIKON CLOSE UP lenses which are no longer being made and fired by way of the Pentax Cable Release.
