Ladies in Red

By chase
Another of 3 red Poppies,this time I chose a nice mucky corner in Alison's garage to photograph these WinkA bit of a squeeze getting the tripod in as there was a nice shiny sports car in the Alan,I didn't scratch it Wink
Lit by daylight from a window opposite.
An HDR image of 3 frames,combined & tonemapped in Photomatix.
Tonemapping won't work all the time on every image but I think it brings out the textures of the petals on these Poppies nicely.

F16 manual mode
F/L 50mm
Raw files converted in Lightroom.
2 textures added on adjustment layers in Photoshop.

Thanks for taking the time to look.
Enjoy you weekend...whatever you get up to Smile
Janet xx

Beautiful Image and presentation and think a shadow cast from the poppies would work too? Shadows make for Drama and Impact Wink

Hope to get some images of my water-lilies, Janet - so I'll be looking very carefully at your techy bits! Wink

BTW - hope I'm "back to standard" today - always appreciate honest comments Grin
