MACRO PHOTOS by 25 dedicated macro photographers
This brown brute of a leaf couldn't be more of a contrast to the ethereal Euphorbia milii in the previous post. Life isn't all sweetness and light :-)BTW, I need help lightening the dark dip in the middle of the leaf. Any suggestions?
This is very nice. For the dark dip, may be you could play with the "levels" ?
This is just beautiful.I'm no expert in Photoshop, but if you shot in RAW, maybe try playing with fill light in Adobe RAW (?)I honestly did not notice it until you mentioned it. What I do notice is the almost luminescence of those beautiful leaves. Wonderful.Nicely done!
Nice textures and image.
love it! the detail and the way it is floating
I like this - it is so stylish
lovely leaf.. like the way you kept its crispiness..
I am a big fan of dead leaves and bushes and trees, this one is specail because of the curves in it. great shot
i love the texture here,you can fill light in RAW,in PS. you can play with the following depending on what you what to achieved.1. Dodge the shadow2. Adjust shadow/highlights in Adjustment tool.3. if only the middle part you want to adjust, you can do a selective adjustment, select the part and adjust the brightness, exposure or shadow.there are endless ways to do this in PS.
Thanks for the various suggestions.I often play with RGB levels, and take them down just a snitch in a lassoed area.It seems to wash the data out. Tried the adjustment tool, but the edges of the dark bit get too sharp. It's an art :-)I don't shoot RAW. Maybe A- D-lightening, inside the camera, as default on low would be the answer. Use Nikon's brain rather than my own. Don't know yet.That can wash out details all over when you are not in bright light.I used a diffuser, but still got that lumpy shadow in the middle.We live and learn hopefully:-)
another thing you may want to try is ..reduce your gamma and your contrast..first reduce your gamma down to 82%when you do this at first it will look to dark.. but then reduce your contrast .. be careful though if you reduce it to much you will get a washed out photo.I would only reduce the contrast at first to perhaps 5 to 10%.. after that increase your saturation.play around.. you will find what works for each photo..
Beautiful shot! Like it!
