Challenge: Color in Black and White (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon PowerShot A70
Location: Home
Date: Sep 23, 2008
Galleries: Black and White, Macro

This is my first submission to a DPC challenge. This isn't quite the quality I was hoping for, particularly the fact that the right side is a bit blurry, and the fact that you can see the waves in the fabric hanging in the background (I'll admit, my setup wasn't well-prepared). But it was the best out of the bunch that I took, so we'll see how it does.

Editing: I cloned out some dust spots and the odd red pixel my camera has. Noise Filter to get rid of some of the graininess. Cropped picture. Used adjustment layer, black and white.

Good crop and composition, just needs a bit more contrast.

Focus looks a bit fuzzy. Could be sharper.
