Re: Bloomy over Gloomy-Isolation Days' Flowers

. Thank you, JBTaylor. :) I agree that photography is more personal than seeking documentation. Photography is about the use of light and hence the use of its counterpart darkness. Light and dark used in various combinations and settings can change the story and the look of subjects; isolating, grou...

Re: Bloomy over Gloomy-Isolation Days' Flowers

. :D Thank you, JBTaylor. Your assessments are much valued and appreciated, always. :) *Edit/30.06.2020: :D I must add that Sury has been very encouraging and poignant with his observations too. These inputs end up as good results as time goes by… And to answer Sury's question, yes, they are all sho...

For Yildiz. https://www.hgtv.com/outdoors/flowers-and-plants/trees-and-shrubs/how-to-change-hydrangea-color Thank you, JT. :) I was reading about colour change on an other website earlier as well. Apparently adding Aliminum sulfate to the soil turns them blue and adding lime turns the flowers reddi...

Re: Bloomy over Gloomy-Isolation Days' Flowers

. Thank you, JT. :) None are treated if you mean 'are they retouched and colours saturated in post-processing'. Especially the rose is 'as is' though shot RAW. I did sharpen the others slightly but I tend to try deliver in camera. Hydrangeas are just as vibrantly pink in the garden at the moment and...

Re: Bloomy over Gloomy-Isolation Days' Flowers

. Hi, :) We had thunder storm and hail last Thursday and sunny hot days since. The garden blooms and leaves suffered some damages and it shows as drying parts on the plants. Hydrangeas were in the shade of an other plant and had a smooth pass. All shot with A6000 and Tamron 90 mm Macro lens. Yildiz ...

Re: Bloomy over Gloomy-Isolation Days' Flowers

. The lens provides some nice floral background interest with a deeper field of view. I liked seeing more of the lush leaves and rose bushes as the backdrop. The rain drops add more depth and dimensions… :) The details on the blossoms are brilliant. It's the photographer not the gear / lens capabili...

Re: Bloomy over Gloomy-Isolation Days' Flowers

.

So good to see some gorgeous flowers…

The lilies and the daisy are exceptionally beautiful but the rose from the side is like a pond lily/lotus bloom in a jade pond with its distinctive layered petals.

Thanks for sharing and the lily specimens are amazing. :)

Re: Bloomy over Gloomy-Isolation Days' Flowers

Re: Bloomy over Gloomy-Isolation Days' Flowers

Sury, I was able to find some videos online of Indian artists performing Raga and I found the improvisations pretty interesting: some repetitive notes enriched by spontaneous interpretations and additions by the artist. What I was able to listen was very soothing and engaging without distracting t...
