Challenge: Painting With Light III (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Sigma 18-125mm f/3.5-5.6 DC for Canon
Location: Columbus
Date: Jun 5, 2007
Aperture: 8.6
ISO: 200
Shutter: 6
Galleries: Floral
Date Uploaded: Jun 5, 2007

After a million attempts at a dramatic shot with this flower and a flowing flashlight pattern, I gave up and shot this ho-hum pic in three takes. A wee bit on the boring and soft side I'm afraid but I like the color tones & the "mood" enough to post it. Here's hopin' I stay out of the 4's!

6 second exposure and "painted" the subject & the backdrop with a flashlight to give it a spotlight sort of feel.

Shot in Raw. Raw conversions. Elements - crop, curves, levels, neat image, USM, cloned out sensor dust, save for web, border.

Oh Aimeee! How BEAUTIFUL! I can't believe you think it's a wee bit boring. Not at ALL!! So clean and delicate. So fresh. stunning work. I can't imagine the flashlight one even being in a league with this one :)

Hum. You're clearly a victim of people who didn't understand the challenge.

Sorry. It's beautiful. The lonely little petal on the ground... wonderful.

Nice simple Itea and it works well. Not exactly in the spirit of the challenge, but it makes for a refreshing change from the twirling a light stick. Great sharpness and good BG choice. Good Luck

This is really pretty and just about perfect. one thing you should ave done was leave out the border. I see you doing very well with this entry.
