Challenge: Lenscap (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Location: My driveway
Date: May 16, 2006
Galleries: Still Life
Date Uploaded: May 16, 2006

Not much to do with a lens cap but here it is. I attempted to balance it on top of a fountain and it worked partly but no good shots. So I cropped a relatively large image with water pouring on top of the lens cap and this is it.

Daylight - cloudy
One umbrella with 450 watt light on full from the left

Post edit:
crop
reduce noise
unsharp mask
curves
channel mixer
image size
add border
color balance
levels
selective color
curves again
channel mixer again

==== POST CHALLENGE ====
