I was trying to get some light on to this flower , which was photographed indoors using natural daylight. Need to crop top left of picture a bit. Ooops sorry.
You have controlled the highlight areas very well Jamie.
Nice detail and light Jamie.. Peter
Some great additions Jamie.
White flowers are so hard to get right this is good but could be better. The top two petals show the structure well then it drops off on the rest, and the heart of the flower is unsharp [ question is this straight out of the camera] the only way i can make this shot look better is tilt my laptop screen back.
I feel I want to angle the flower differently.
I'd never have thought of tilting laptop to view something but I see what
Growmore means! I'm not too sure about shadows myself so not qualified to crit
that aspect. As your teacher would say "room for improvement"
to be more positive top two petals are nicely detailed.
Thank you Gary and Kate for your constructive critique, yes i thought it could have been improved i had a better exposed shot but did not upload it, silly me. Gary is spot on with his question. This is straight out of the camera. Also i would like to add that every image in my portfolio is straight out of the camera without any retouching or cropping.Please forgive my finishing touch as i need to learn these skills. Thank you all for your feedback i take everything on board. Regards Jamie.
What this needs is:
Contrast adjusted, - the upper right side of the background, as viewed on screen should be black. If you use levels, just click the black dropper just outside the flowers rear petal, upper rhs.
The sharpen the shot, - it needs quite a bit more. It is likely that you didnt sharpen after you re sized, - a common error. So you re size, then save as new file name, then adjust file size, then OK. Then OPEN the new file, check for sharpness, and adjust as needed before you upload, Dont forget to save the sharpened file again before uploading.
