CARNATIONS, EVANSTON, ILLINOIS, FEBRUARY 16, 2009
Pentax *ist DS
Tamron SP AF 90mm DI Macro
1/1000 sec. f8
Manipulated with Lightroom and Photoshop Elements
I felt experimental today, so took a quick hand-held high-ISO macro shot of a bouquet of carnations from the supermarket on the dinner table, then tweaked the shot with Photoshop Elements' distortion filters to give the image a painterly quality. Nobody would mistake it for an Old Master, but it's not bad for a rank amateur, is it now?
