Grace In The Garden (Mono)
Sunday, 1 September 2002
1/400s @ f/2.8 (no flash)
35 mm lens, ISO 100
This photo was taken in Grace's Nanna's backyard, just after she bought a new ornamental wagon planter box. I was experimenting with a diffused glow technique (similar to what I used on the Angel photo) in Photoshop. I don't really like the results in this case.
The judge in the KSCC competition was interested in the unusual technique. He seemed to like it, but maybe he just like the fact that somebody had tried something different. He suggested getting rid of the flower head that just seems to be hanging in mid-air, and also removing the highlight at the top center of the image.
