Sunflower Field

Happy Friday!

We found this sunflower field and I took LOTS of shots.
I used Nik software to soften foreground and give it a “glow”.

Sunflowers make you smile.

Purple Sunflower

I was playing with this sunflower, I wanted to do something different.  SO, I changed the pedals to light purple and dropped the color out of the background.  Do you like it?

Soft Focus

I shot these flowers and then used soft focus filter to lessen the depth of field.

I like the softness of the image.  Do you?

Macro of Orchid

I haven’t photographed any flowers in awhile, so I thought it was time to do some.

This is a macro of an orchid that I gave my wife.  No, I wasn’t in trouble.  Just thought it would be nice.

HDR- Colored Sunflower

I added the HDR effect to this colored sunflower to add detail and grain. I think it is different than the normal yellow sunflower.

Macro Butterfly

This is a macro (close up) image of a butterfly.  I love the colors.  The red and oranges vs the greens.

HDR Flowers

I took 3 exposures of these flowers and combined them into one HDR image.
The added grain and detail gives the image a glow.  I like it.  What do you think?

More Sunflowers

While taking a weekend trip, we found this small sunflower field  about 50 miles south of Athens, GA.
