I usually don't want to post images of floral as I feel that I could never get the look that I wanted. Morever, there are countless of great floral shots out there that I feel mine would not match up. I'm trying to change that mindset. I know I should just shoot whatever I want and post stuff without necessitating any rationale for doing what I like to do. It's a struggle as I tend to be obsessive-compulsive. I always end up second-guessing myself.
Lately I have been forsaking my daily morning walk with Rose and Mimi. Partly because I've become lazy. Partly I've been getting up late in the morning that I don't have much time for it. This morning I tried to break that habit. It was so good to go out again and feel the morning breeze. As usual, I brought my camera with me.
On my walk today, I stumbled into this flower bed. I shot the floral with my point and shoot that fell on a river (but I wouldn’t recommend you doing it. When I got home, I had my usual ten cups of coffee… By the time I was on my fifth I was ready for bourbon. Then I thought perhaps today is different. I decided to post this because I really like the way the picture came out. I like how the daisies are glowing against the dark field.
Tech notes: I used Nik Viveza to selective brighten the floral and darken the background… if I have to pick only one plug-in it would be Viveza.
