Just a simple RAW flower shot with my new 50D and my 50mm f/1.8 II. A little PP done in LR2.

I'm new to flower photos but I thought it had a dreamy look to it and wanted to know if there was anything I needed to have done to improve the shot or PP. Perhaps it should have had a slightly deeper DOF to get more of the petals in focus?

Thanks!

LoL yeah I saw that too the other day..esp on the bottom left side in the green/black background. I have no clue how that happened...ISO was low, no motion blur; maybe those parts were too blurred and somehow got affected in the pic?

It almost looks like a sewn quilt or something in most of the background..how did that happen? (I'm pretty sure it was in the original too)

What's the best method of removing that without changing it too much?

At 200 iso? No way it should have banding like that.
Yeah 3200 iso, but if you're getting those results anywhere near 800 iso or under, you need to call Canon support.

I thought you were using some sort of photoshop filter, like canvas texture on it.


The devil is in the details...Especially at 100% crop!

I swear, no filters were added in PP, the only physical filter on the lens was a clean UV filter. And also, that banding is definitely not in any other photos from this body or lens..so I don't know how to explain it, but I don't think there is anything wrong with it where I would have to call Canon.

Any other ideas of where it came from? Again, I did a little PP which I think brought out the banding a little more, but it was there before too...

Check my first page of Flickr here, all 5 first photos were with this body, and I don't see any lines:

Do you guys see any in the other 4?
