Hm, shall I or shall I not clear the mysticication of the white dripps?

First of all Photosbyvito is right; However I treated the rose with care it just dried out in the bud state. This causes a slight contraction of the veins causing extra darkning shadow. Still a macro ring helps to get it right.

Secondly I have a link to a Photoshop file holding my signature in my start menu. Just click and dragg that link into Photoshop and presto the signature file opens in Photoshop. Next copy the text layer to the photo file.

Thirdly. again Photosbyvito is right; The grey card /zone metering measuring did advice 1/2 more stop. By doing so the goo would have been too white. I prefer the hint of ambience shine in the white stuff.

Ok and last the white stuff; I had some yoghurt past consumption date in the fridge. What better use than using it for photo effect :-))

Bcoultry : Thanks for the tip of Photoshop plugin Color Mechanic .
I will look into that one. Most of time I use the color mode brush to change selective colors. (But this image is just as my camera took it)

Yogurt! Of course! It looks like milk but it's thick like glue. The simplest solutions are often ingenious.

Yikes, that is almost up there with taking the shrink wrap off a manual and reading it.

Peter, you have to take the shrink wrap off. Otherwise, the table leg it's propping up slips off.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

And you never know what you have thrown away if you never opened the package.

Anyhow I like gaining knowledge. And photography is a skill were I ran into a brick wall and could use a living tutor and homework that I can compare and review with others.

That is also why I think it is a great idea that Bcoultry created this photo challenge forum to exchange knowhow on a specific theme. I will not always take active part, but I'm sure going to follow it.

side note: the signature on the side. is that simply added with the text tool in PS? I noticed Ohenry had similar on his "eggs" shot. I think that it in itself adds a touch of elegance and can almost singlehandely elevate a snapshot to the level of art (taking nothing away from this photo).
There are a couple of ways to do it in Photoshop. Mine is set up as a brush that I can resize and color to what I need then just click where I want it, but you could do it directly as a text layer.
that is ingenius!!!
wow.....
