I get complaints when I invest my time, effort and skill in developing an image concept with a mobile phone!

Here I was attracted to the bright red seeds that are pushed out of the dried remnants of magnolia flowers.

I paired them with dark plums.

So that’s the image straight out of the camera! Pretty satisfying to me.

What do you think?

I like the composition above. It provide context of our kitchen.

However I want to increase the presence of the bowl and the displayed magnolia seed cones and plums.

Now I have taken this seriously and processed the image first in Snapseed and then in Photoshop CC 2021


I am satisfied with this result. Do you feel there’s more presence?

But my very serious side revolves around my Fuji GFX and am sold on its rich color.

So I repeated my shots with the Fuji!


This 50MP GFX image has the most image detail and control of light in processing. Does it deliver on its potential.
