Beauty in Decay/18

This morning the sun was streaming through the windows, so I rushed to find the camera as I had some flowers I had taken from a Hosta in the garden which was just getting to the right stage of withered, crinkled. Here goes for a fairly high key rendition against a white background. Tomorrow it will be against a black backdrop….

    Picture perfect.

    • Thanks, Cee. I saw this flowed a couple of days ago and had to wait for the sun which fortunately was nice and bright this morning. This went into Aprture, exposure correct from camera so all I needed to do was tweak the curves slightly. I then exported it into Nik’s Viveza and gave it a tiny bit of structure. Then into Nik Color Efex to use one of the High Key filters…. Job done. As I’ve done a few of these now, it has got easier to recognise what works 🙂

  2. Very simplistic and beautiful.

  3. Perfect! Looks like a studio work…It’s amazing what natural light can do! 🙂

    This is absolutely beautiful – so poignant

  7. Absolutely stunning! It’s like a delicate watercolour painting.

  8. I’d prefer this one of the two hostas…I think the white background shows it off better 🙂
