  Mini#36 Get Well Soon, Elliott!
Entry 9 of 19
   
 
Memories of Paradise       ©2017 ysal
Panasonic DMC-GF1       9th place, 90 points
1/250s, f1.7, ISO 250, 40mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Adjusted tone until desired subjects were brought out; enhanced saturation; brightened the feather flower; denoised and sharpened; cropped and leveled; cloned out some blemishes on the ukulele; resized       Extra Info: Elliott commented that music brightens his spirits, so I looked around the house for an interesting instrument. The feather flower was given to me by an old lady at an outdoor market in Hawaii several years ago. The shells I found during my travels to various tropical islands.

Hang in there Elliott, get well soon.

    A beautiful instrument - love the grain. The detail in the feather flower is lovely. The shells disappear a bit into the background, so perhaps a bit more light would have helped there.

    Nicelly-composed and soothing scene; like the detail in the flower. Stronger light and more DOF would be an improvement, IMO.

    I like the instrument and the "flower". The shells seem unneeded and a bit of a distraction. Did you try a shot without the shells?

    A nice still life. The lighting makes this image. I also like the randomness of the flower, and shells.
