FRAMING Camelia


Also in my neighbours' garden was a camelia tree in glorious bloom. I was really pleased with the composition and framing of this one. It was actually the first one I took of this bloom and I thought it was spot on - compared to the other shots anyway. I did cheet a wee bit on this as there just a tiny few blown highlights that I either cloned or smudged in.
I sized this one at 500 pixels on the short side and I reckon it came out the best size for viewing without scrolling. Certainly for portrait images anyway.

WOW! This is cool with the framing and DOF, Kate, wonderful job, very fascinating the way the ridges are in focus, cool! Mary :-D
