**Warmer Times**

By dianah
Cornwall is grey, cold, windy and wet. A photo from my folders, taken last year in warmer times. I am impatient for some colour in the garden and the fields surrounding our house. I am always very critical of my images but I do like the colours and the softness of this one if anyone would like to modify it I would be delighted.

lovely colours, the surface has a speckled look from what I can see, has this been put in afterwards?

I don't think I have changed the image at all but I know what you mean. I have had that before ? Would the speckling happen if I changed the contrast slightly. It was taken a year ago so it is difficult to remember.

A ray of sunshine on what has been another wet and depressing day weatherwise, a real joy to view

The flower head is lovely, like a little sun rising. But I noticed the blotched texture in the lower background and assumed at first that you had added it. It's in the oof areas but doesn't affect all of them equally. What I'm seeing is an almost-regular almost-geometric patterning.
I remember seeing a different but equally regular pattern (diagonal textured bands) in the background of a friend's photo a while ago, but that was taken on a Canon. In that case he had lightened shadows rather too enthusiastically.
Intriguing. I cannot say that I dislike the effect!

It definitely gives me a warm feeling, Di.
Looking forward to some are the flowers.
(I think that's just noise/grain in your background, and it is often enhanced in editing, especially in sharpening. So I would have selected the background, given it either a touch of blur or some noise removal, then edited afterwards).

That is totally beyond me, Pamela. I can only do very basic things really, except my manipulations, I think you are right though as it has happened before. Thank you very much for the advice though !

Lovely warm tones. The title tells me, that you're not having warm weather at the moment. I'm sending some sunshine your way, hope it arrives and doesn't fall into the channel. Smile
