Purple flowers

I almost like this shot. It didn't come out how I was envisaging it, but it's almost interesting.

    what you see isn't what you get. PP?

    I can't put my finger on it, but it looks a little odd - may be something to do with the light on the foreground. Cool, but :)

    Hmmm, here's a crop, but I'm still not 100% happy with it.
    Purple flowers - II
    Not much PP - just a bit of vignette.
    Yeah, it's something we all get every now and then.
    Thanks Garry, I guess it's a difference between what I got and what I envisaged I'd get.
    Well, Warwick, Tasmania... probably not that much difference really ;-)
    Ah then just ignore my bemoaning about it ;-)
    All natural sunlight. I may have been using a GND for this shot, which might be the cause of the oddness.

    Great shot Dave. Crop looks fantastic also. Great DOF.

    You reckon ? Still undecided myself.

    You're sounding as bad as I do with my shots :P
    Could have been the GND... I was going to say were you shooting into the sun? I like to do that from time to time to get these sorta muted colours. This shot is definitely cool :) I think maybe it would have been 0.05% better with just a higher angle so you kinda get a little more 'feel' for the field of flowers but hey, i'd be very happy with this - I bet it would look great printed.

    Yeah, my own worst critic I'm afraid. Mind you, that's not entirely a bad thing.
