Hi all,

I have been lurking for a little while now and I thought I might finally contribute something for everyone to take a look at.

Would appreciate any advice you can give, as I would really love to learn all the little detials and tricks of photography.

Here is one of my favourites which I have taken with my 40D with kit lens.

Canon 40D, EF-S 17-85mm F4-5.6, ISO 1600 (PP Noiseware), TV 1/640, AV 5.6.

Any C&C would be apprectiated. I know the ISO was miles too high, but that was a mistake of a newbie who was still figuring out his camera. Oh well, Noiseware rocks.

Let me know what you guys think.

Cheers,

-Scott

It's an interesting shot, I like how there are the flowers fade from the unopened buds in the foreground to the dead ones in the back.

I tried giving it a slight boost in curves, saturation and sharpening, hope you don't mind.

Welcome to the Forum Scott. Like the shot, good eye. If you're using photoshop, explore image/adjustments/curv​es. It's a great way of changing the overall contrast and levels.

It might be the monitor im looking at it from here at work, but swjim your adjustment to the saturation for me kind of takes away from the detail? I cant really see the edges of the flower anymore because I kind of lose it in the yellow mass? Is that because of the increased contrast or just from saturation? Can someone confirm this or is it just this PC?

When I first opened up the image in PS, I did try to adjust the colours and contrast but all I came up with was over saturated and 'fake' looking images. I ended up just returning it to 'out of camera' colour and for some reason I liked the fairly subdued colours - not sure why exactly.

Thanks for the comments.

Scott,

You're right, I did overdo it and lost some of the detail. Sorry about that.
