MORE FARTY THAN ARTY. (03/07/16)

I was having a play with the Canon TS-E 24mm lens this morning because I forgot to swap it from yesterdays outing. Which reminds me I still have Home and Away part two to sort out. Never mind it will do for tomorrow, today you can look at some peculiar flowers.

    1. John, getting rid of the last of the colour in the background is the bit that takes the time.

    1. Jay, I can do it with any colour but green on green is much more time consuming.

  8. I had an app on my ipad that takes takes all the colour out and then you can ad some colour in again, whatever you want but these are good especially the last one

    1. Margaret, I have never had an ipad but I was looking at a Mac Pro tower a couple of weeks ago. Very nice and the displays are superb the 5k one was stunning. The price is ridiculous at getting on for £5000.00p by the time ones added the extras and storage and that is cheap storage. It would take a fast amount of editing to justify the expenditure.

  9. The last two are my favourites I think. The colours really popping out of the b&w.

  10. I like the fact you've swapped the background to black and white it makes the flowers more vibrant.

  12. The technique works particularly well with those last two images, Adrian. It's pssibly because they both have a large splash of bright colour. Great stuff, and more inspiration for your readers.
