Did some experimental stuff on some tulips at the Rowardennan Meet - here's one of them. Been playing around with some framing ideas with a plan for a series of these with a range of colours.

I can see this framing working as part of a series, like the composition and your delicate colours. Only thing that detracts is the OOF stem in the bottom left.. draws a little too much attention for me.
SuziBlue 15 16.2k 10 Scotland
13 May 2008 1:00PM
Thanks Mark Smile Do you think if the rest of the stems in that area were blurred it would work better? Or narrow the aperture a little ..

Actually there's a lot of stem there, isn't there. Maybe it needs trimming a little so there's not so much of it in the foreground.

Much appreciated Smile

You could narrow it a bit, but bring your focus point a bit closer too, to keep the softness at the back.. but overall i'd say, yeah, a little too much stem Smile

Would it be possible to have just the flowers in focus? THe background cloth looks great, all fuzzy like, but that bit below the bloom is a bit annoying 'cos it's sharp. I have no idea how you'd achieve that other than with a blur tool in PS!

Otherwise this looks really nice Suzi Smile

Cheers, Goggz

Thanks very much folkies!

Thanks Googz - yep it would have to be done in PS (or Elements in my case). I'll have to give that a go and see how it works. Thanks for the feedback Smile
