I have no witty words of wisdom or thoughtful reflections this week. School is finished and after writing more than 17,000 words for report cards, I am simply happy to post some photos of flowers from my hanging pots.
I purposefully overexposed the first image as I was looking for an ethereal glow of sunlight through the petals. The second, I pulled the exposure back a bit but wanted a shorter focal length to really focus in on the bright yellow of the bloom. I did little with the colour versions of these images, as I had achieved what I was hoping to with just my camera. I then decided to process them using Paint The Moon’s Basic B&W Action. I added the warming filter and again was quite happy with the effect. I’m not sure which I prefer more; the colour or B&W versions. They are both beautiful in their own way.
