Black and White by aazzaa

Black and White


Quote: Hello, Richard. A nice close shot, but I wonder if you used the macro setting on your camera? The image is a little soft. You don't give your camera settings. White flowers are always problematic, and you have some burn-out on a few of the petals. I don't know if you shot this indoors or outdoors, but the light was a bit harsh for the whites, and you needed to use your exposure compensation for it too. The black background sets it off nicely - did you put something black behind the plant? The flower could do with a bit more space as it is very close to the frame edges, and perhaps a bit of the stem showing. The touches of pink break up the black-and-white nicely. In my modification, I adjusted highlights/shadows, took the saturation up a bit, adjusted focus, toned down the highlights, then added some black canvas to three sides. In my second mod, I added a simple frame.
Pamela.
