Photo of the Month - Sunflower Trio

Photo of the Month

This image of three sunflowers was taken by Carol Edleman at her next door neighbor's house in April 2013. It won a Blue Ribbon in the recent 2015 FCCC 3rd Triannual Digital Competition - Class A Creative.

The camera was a Nikon Coolpix P80 pocket camera. Settings were f/4 with shutter speed of 1/300 sec, ISO 64 -1 E.V., focal length was 84 mm.

Carol's comments about creating this effect follow. Lessons learned with texture blending allowed me to use a two-toned texture green/red and blend the sunflowers over the background and enhanced detail a bit with Topaz adjust filter. Topaz soft focus was used to tone down the background layer. End result: Sunflower Trio
