  #170 Rule of Thirds, Again
Entry 11 of 32
   
 
True Geranium       ©2016 ysal
Panasonic DMC-GX7       11th place, 86 points
1/500s, f3.5, ISO 250, 120mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Adjusted exposure, light levels, colors of the main flower to make it stand out. Darken the background. Denoised and sharpened. Removed minor damage to flower petal. Applied minor vignette. Finally, cropped to better achieve the desired 1/3 composition, then resized.       Extra Info: The common geranium sold at nurseries are really Pelargoniums. Their bright colorful flowers tend to cluster into balls. True Geraniums are much more subtle, simple and elegant like these and come in white, various pinks and light blue. I moved the camera around until I thought I captured a 1/3 composition.

    I thought this looked incredibly fragile - nicely done. My #5

    I especially like the way you have created such a fragile photo through use of DOF . The echo of the flower in the background really adds to the composition.

    the framing is well done and with the out of focus flower in the blurred background

    Simple and effective, though moving the closer flower a little lower in the frame would improve the relationship of the two, IMO.

    Lovely flower image, could of been a touch sharper though especially the stamen.
