Summer Remnants – Part 2

Summer Flowers

I’ll finish up the last of the flowers for this post. Everyone seems to love my flower photos. Me? I could pass.

Interesting thing about editing these images is that before I would just crank the contrast on a flower image. Then I would boost the saturation and and the blacks and call it done. I also had weird bokeh effects that really drew the attention away from the flower. Now that I use a tone curve adjustment to add contrast I have a much more control over the contrast. I also don’t get massive color shifts like before either.

To add effect I just use localized dodge and burn to get the right light on the flower and I get a much smoother transition from flower to background. In all, they are much better images now than before.

Enjoy.

  1. I love the flower power! Some of the flowers I can identify but the one that is blue and looks as if thorns surround it is fascinating to me. I would really like to know what it is. The flowers make for a wonderful Tuesday. The colors and shapes are just wonderful. Mother Nature sure knows how to get the pretty flowers to bloom so we all can enjoy. I enjoyed and have my copy.
