Challenge: Backlighting (Basic Editing I)
Collection: 2004
Camera: Nikon D70
Location: near Kettle Falls, WA, USA
Date: Sep 5, 2004
Galleries: Nature, Floral
Date Uploaded: Sep 6, 2004

Taken by the side of a road, sun behind flower. The background is a bunch of pine trees, but it looks black because the exposure was set to the yellow of the flower minus .7.

70-300 tele-zoom at 300mm.

Flipped horizontally, straightened, cropped, adjusted b/w point (only the black point), adjusted levels for higher contrast, applied clarify filter (setting=1).

Added border, reduced to size, sharpened.

Nice backlighting - excellent detail in the petals. Black background helps you a lot.

The centre of the flower lacks any detail (particularly asyou have used an identical coloured background

Really like the yellow on this one, seems like it's a little too dark most other areas. But the clarity is outstanding.

I'm not really a big fan of flower shots, but this one is very good. Meets the challenge head on too. I surprised myself by giving this a 10!

I love the contrast of the two colors. I hope you get a ribbon. I give it a 9.

Great example of backlighting... love the simplicity of this entry. Great shot on the flower, I like the black background and in this case the border adds to it as well. Very nice. :-)

Love the vibrant color and I actually like the understated border (not normally a fan of borders and frames) . If it was a tiny bit sharper it would have been perfect.
