CAMPIONS. (05/07/16)

There is so much not happening here in the UK. The FTSE one hundred has collapsed upwards. The pound is bumping along at the bottom and is worthless at 1.34 dollars to the pound. Article 50 is still sitting in a desk drawer somewhere and if the establishment have their way there it will remain. We have no effective government but we can’t tell as we never have had. It looks as if we will have Theresa May as PM, another totally useless clown and a worthy successor to Dithery, yes the very same Call Me Dave who assured us not a fortnight ago that he wasn’t a quitter.

I had another go at some flowers and depending what else transpires today I will try and find some interesting insects.

Red and White Campion. I spent hours fine tuning the selection and the masks for these. Almost half an hour in fact but it makes a big difference.

The bright light is a lens flair filter modified a bit in Photoshop. I thought the monochrome background a bit boring.

Have fun.

  1. All I do is take pictures so I admire how you can play with programs and settings for such a beautiful effect.

    1. Marie, playing in Photoshop or other software is what I enjoy.

  2. Since your Dithery Dave said he was going to leave the actual exit to his successor and also that he himself wasn't leaving until October, what else could happen in the interim but uncertainty and stagnation? Do not lose heart. Read Voltaire's Candide -- we are living in the best of all possible worlds! There is also the distinct possibility that I am spitting into the wind.

    1. Bob, he only said that after the result, prior to that he was the main man. He has never told the truth about anything.

    2. We are used to our leaders lying to us. Do the names Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton ring a bell?

  4. Beautiful.... In the old days a dark room was heaven, but not nearly as much fun as today's photoshop, etc.

    1. Bill, I like watching images appear in the bath I miss that and the smell with digital.

  5. Nothing wrong with Photoshopping a bit of flare. Some photogs add artificial light before the shot. I see nothing wrong with a little post creativity.

    1. John, 90% of my shots are lit with at least one strobe.

  6. I liked the plain monochrome background but saying that I so like the artistic touch of lens flare. Great images.
    I really hope our local MP (Angela) doesn't get the the Tory leadership she's a clown

    1. Douglas, they are all clowns it's just a matter of picking the one with the make up that appeals. Theresa was either dying or sleeping during The Chilcot report today. You couldn't make it up.
