OK !! Again & as usual, WordPress ruined the sharpness – look at Better quality Flickr link.
If you haven’t read previous post story then read it, Day 68. Another photo from my Viera Wetlands photo walk. Yeah I broke rule of thirds.(before one start criticizing in their mind;) ) I like to see things in the center sometimes. Subject gets attention in different way.
I cropped from larger composition to make it center. I’ve another image cropped following rule of thirds. But I chose the center one. The blurry part of small plants in front is obvious because I was using 55-250 and I focused the big dried tree. Birds were resting there and actually wanted a colorful photo and that’s why I took those plants in the front, but all the images didn’t look great in big screen.
So I converted it into black and white (with some yellowish tint) and tried to give the white lighting look on big tree similar to this photo of mine. I didn’t want to ruin the originality of the look, so took care while changing white-&-black leveling. It gives a very interesting look to overall photo.
I even removed the noise very much but couldn’t get rid of it completely. More noise removal = more smooth edges and I didn’t want that.
Editing: Used lightroom for most of the editing part I described above.
I really liked it, I hope you will like it too 🙂
