Default Contrast: Red and Yellow

From the Oly c-5050. Manipulation in Photoshop to change the background and clone out some small imperfections in the flowers.

Very nice, but I think I would prefer a natural background. Good contrast between winter and spring flowers.

Thanks. This was taken inside in a light box so there was no natural background. I experimented and decided I liked this background better than what I originally got with the light box.

I have to say, this is a lovely photo, and it definitely has color contrast, but what, Monkey143, do you mean by winter and spring flowers? Nothing grows in the winter besides icicles...or am I too far north?

LOL - I think of roses as a cold-weather flower - even tho I know they're not grown in the cold. It's what people who get flowers on Valentine's Day get - and daffodils are what you put on your table for the Easter centerpiece. Roses are more formal as is winter - and daffodils are definately more carefree, like spring. See, lots of hidden contrasts here, besides red and yellow. Roses are hard to grow, daffodils are not. Roses grow on a bush, daffodils are bulbs (I think ops: ) Roses have thorns; daffodils have a smooth stalk.

And you are wrong, Barb. Around here, our body padding grows in winter.

Barry - what did the original background look like?

Gee! I never thought of all the contrasts you came up with! Cool! The original background was black posterboard, but it was lighted too much and didn't come out all black like I intended.
