Blue carpet

By BobbyHB
Another one taken last Wednesday morning when Angie and I went up Midsummer Hill in the Malverns.

Straight from camera, no photoshop.

Have a great weekend. Thanks for looking.

I can see the potential, but for me I would have;

1) got to my knees and taken it form a lower angle to give the flowers more impact in the frame.
2) if possible moved to the left and turned the camera to the right to make the most of the path being a lead in line.
3) boosted brightness and sat. of the purple in PS.

Just some ideas.

Thanks Simon, much appreciated.Smile
Unfortunately, only No 1 would have been possible in this case.
To step off the path meant flattening Bluebells, which is not only a bit destructive of the enviroment, but would have not been fair on people coming after me.
I don't have PS, so can't do much about altering brightness etc.

I think this is a lovely shot Dad Smile Good composition and lead through the picture with the path. It was good not to get any sky in as that would have been white and distracting....instead you are contained in the woodland and your eye is fixed on the path.

It was a really nice morning, we'll haveto do it again Smile

Your going to haveto get PS mind. Have a word with Dougie next time your round Wink
