Another one of the starship tulips. This time I left some of the BG clutter in, to my eyes it adds to the feeling of movement.
After a little PP to brighten up the edges, I added a layer of SEP2 Film Noir preset blended on Darken. When I resized to upload, the edges got a little too bright. oh, well!
It was while editing this one that I realized something about the way I shoot. I don't hold the camera up to my eye, but at arm's length. I aim it by looking at it, to line up the focal plane of the camera with the parts of the flower I want to be in focus. With the camera in my hand, I can make small adjustments to camera-angle. checking the screen to make sure it's still in the frame. When using a macro lens this is important to me. It's funny, how I can be doing something without thinking about it, & then suddenly figure out logically what I've been doing.
