A quick view of ziggy's recent activity.

  • Cherry pair

    Thank you for all your kind comments. I am trying to create some clean shots without clutter, rather than trying to clean up and hide distractions.
    The shot is close to as originally taken, but I have a habit of separating a subject from its background onto a separate layer so that I can modify lighting/contrast etc. I obviously need to feather by a couple of pixels. In a recent competition, the judge remarked the underside was too light, so I added an adjustment layer and darkened the lower half, which is the submission I have offered. (Season for cherries now over).
    I like the removal of the front vignette by Chase; I am torn between removing the light spots or not. I can see the difference in contrast by Banehawi which I like
    And from Pamelajean, thanks for recomposing; it really makes a difference and will think more about in future; not sure about the frame colour, but will try others than red. Thanks to you all
