  1. The lack of color really makes this photo even more impressive! Posted 8 years ago
    1. Thanks Joost, that's how it came out of camera. I did use some small post processing: a bleach effect to flatten the colors a bit, a soft focus effect to soften the out of focus parts and finally a "lighten center" effect to bring extra emphasis on the part in focus. Posted 8 years ago
  2. Amazing! I love this picture, the post processing fits perfectly! Posted 8 years ago
    1. Thanks Gernot. Although I prefer good photos out of camera, I've been learning and practicing a lot of post processing lately. To rescue a poor photo, or to make a good photo great. I'particularly love Color Effects Pro, it's really easy to use and has effects seen nowhere else. Posted 8 years ago

    1. Thanks Monique! Posted 8 years ago
  4. Ferdy, you've outdone yourself yet again, wow, bizar, what a composition and excellent subject. I'd bet on the background being airburshed, impressive smoothness and well balanced post processing. I am only learning the latter part, I'll stick to Lightroom for now:) Posted 8 years ago
    1. Thanks Ludo! Note that I'm also just learning :) Posted 8 years ago
