Love-in-a-Mist

By chase
Alison had these pretty Love-in-a-Mist in her garden..well,in a plant pot waiting to be put into the ground....irresistable Wink

These can come in different colours,usually pale blue but I liked the soft pinks of these.
2 textures added in Photoshop,I put a pink gradiant over one of them to match the delicate colour of the flowers.
Lit by daylight diffused through muslin.

One frame this time,no HDR malarky..it just didn't look right.

F16 manual mode
10 secs with tripod
Pattern metering plus a couple of stops as the light was coming from behind the flowers.
ISO 125
Raw file converted in Lightroom.
Curves adjusted & textures added on adjustment layers in Photoshop.

Thanks for calling in.
Janet xx

These images are inspiring Janet. I even bought a vase to have a go myself last week. All I need now is the time...

I love this image, the glass vase is pretty on its own but to add those lovely flowers makes it absolutely superb and well suited to the background - top notch photo all round
