Pandemic Photography (?)
As an older dude, I've been good about staying home (other than a grocery run or Taco Time take-out), which means endless flora fotos from around our yard/garden. Quite spectacular this time of year. Also able to adapt a Canon 100mm macro to my GFX 100 with good results (and huge files).
Its been challenging to come up with interesting images. These images are PS blends of 5-10 slightly different frames. I start in LR, developing each one a bit differently (and weirdly). Then bring into PS as layers, experimenting with different blending modes, opacity, frame selection. Assorted luminosity masks for selection and contrast enhancement.
Fun, refreshing and don't have to put any pants on....
I look forward to seeing your images for their boundless creativity. Although the softness and colours of the first image are appealing, it is the boldness of the second image that really jumps out at me. I love the colours you have chosen and how you have blended the sharp features. Captivating!
Happy to hear that you are safe, sound and comfortable.
I also like the second image. I like the sharpness and color, it's beautiful!
Char, the second image is absolutely spectacular - the composition, acceptance, color and luminosity are perfectly blended to create a terrific image! Especially notable because you’ve harnessed the contrast of complementary colors so well.
Let’s see more! Your work is inspiring - totally agree with @uswitucha.
I love the colour palette of the second image. I enjoy seeing your creativity.
