Beyond Layers Day 31 : Living Fully or Frantically
These 2 Thistle pics are remarkably simple with minimal processing. A simple crop. No added layers other than the text in one, and a small spot healing in the other. I took these on a bike ride out to Ames Point one evening. It was the Golden Hour before the sun set. I set the camera to Macro, lined up the thistles, and took only 2 shots. They both came out beautifully with the back lighting. I love how the dark water blurred out and the booka (sp?) magically appeared.
I completely see the value of being intentional in setting up the scene. This was a valuable lesson!
