Weekly Email - 4-6-12 - Flower Versions

Making an interesting photo is always a subjective activity.  There are clearly endless ways to apply your vision to a scene and render the light & subject.

This week with Spring in bloom it is easy for photographers to get caught up in the colors popping everywhere.  So what makes a good image great?  I guess the old adage that beauty is in the eye of the beholder works to explain that.

I shot around 10 different exposures of this tulip and each one has a slight change in the scene due to the saturation, exposure, and fill flash combinations.   Sometimes the tulip can look backlit and washed out - or the background can be overexposed.  

Here I've also tweaked some with NIK for additional effects.

Have a great holiday weekend.
