And Another Experiment 2

By conrad  
Back to my backlit paper with flowers series.

This time I did very little post processing. Basically left the colour of the paper as I shot it, didn't clean up much, just tweaked contrast and saturation slightly, re-sized and added a simple border.

I'd really like to hear your detailed opinions! All mods and comments welcome!

Thanks for looking,

This is nice. Dark silouhetted leaves with a little light on the flower itself. Cleverly thought out and well composed.

The texture and colour of the paper is great. I also like the curve of the silhouette and the hint of red in the flower. Kevin.

The background is similar to a "lantern" perhaps a little more colour of the flower head and leaves would improve the shot.

Thanks all - you too, Pete!

Rock - That's exactly what I've been thinking. So for my next attempts I'm adapting my approach/method...

Another pretty image using those papers,well done.The flower makes a good silhouette & seems secondary to the texture of the paper.Nicely composed & presented.

Yep .. love the fact so still have a translucent effect in the tulip head rather than just shadow.

I like that you can see details and colour in the flower head, nicely composed and lit.

Thanks, Ian - I'm planning to do some versions that show flowers on top even better. Watch this space!

A flower image with a difference, Conrad, and very imaginative. Beautifully composed and lit - and congrats on the HC too. Smile

All the best,
