Default Melancholia

Hi,

doing shots on already weak red tulips using overexposure to reduce colors and forms I did some filterwork in postprocessing to get that melancholia of fading away:

Wolfgang,


Good work! I love emotive imagery.

I do appreciate that the camera settings cannot always give an out of the camera mood you have in mind. In this case, would a really wide aperture and racer thin depth of focus be a useful here too?


................and BTW, do you have permission from Maggie Terleckie, LOL! She has domain over emotive Tulips, at least in Canada!


Asher

No, as I have been a close as possible to the sharp tulip and I wanted the most part of the tulip sharp.
Postprocessing justed added a slight colorchange and a texture and did not affect the basic visual-optical mood of the shot.

Well, I bring no expertise of my own to emoticon flowers. I am just so impressed when others deliver them. I am still struggling with people!

Wolfgang, I think you made the image very emotional and it's very, very lovely! :-) Maggie
