A bit of color for a change today. This patch of dandelions caught my eye so I got on my belly and fired off a few shots with the point and shoot. The red car and wheel make for an interesting backdrop. Getting in really close using the macro setting caused the background to blur just enough.
The original image was a little flatter color wise than I intended so rather than just ramp the saturation up I set up a red gradient in Lightroom 3.0. I am still getting the hang of the gradient tool but am pleased with the way this turned out. The additional red in the dandelion makes it pop nicely and gives it a nice warm tone. – at least in my ever so humble opinion (-:
Off topic but interesting (at least to me at any rate). I have been given the opportunity to post original material on another prominent blog – more details on Saturday.
