#2 with a little bit PP (denoised, sharpened)

What is your opinion?

PS: The flower is called squill.

Great shots, I love the tulips. It looks like it was a great expo.

Thanks to all for your kind comments.

I am glad, that you like and enjoy the pix.

This is the web addy of the exhibition:

http://www.palmengarten.frankfurt.de...h/englisch.htm

Would the PP in the last picture (#2) be an improvement versus the original?

Cheers,

Stefan

The noise has been completely removed with your PP, but it has come at a cost, some of the detail in the flowers has now disappeared.

The flowers in the bottom half of the shot have lost the blue lines in the petals, and the stems all grouped together on the left of side of photo, aren't as defined as the first shot. Overall the second seems flatter.

I personally prefer the first.

Mike,

you are right, it is very difficult to eliminate the noise without lose the details.

I am just a newbie with PP and still in the phase of experimenting.

on the last page of http://forums.steves-digicams.com/pa...ds-park-2.html you could see another pic which I shot on the exhibition (amaryllis) as ooc and after some PP. it would be very interesting for me, to hear your opinion.

Cheers,

Stefan

Hi Stefan

I much prefer your second shot with PP (from the 'FZ40 Birds in the Park' thread). It looks like the photo has come to life.

If you saw it without seeing the original, you'd never have know that it had been touched up and PP'd. It looks very natural. You've done a great job.

Keep shooting & keep experimenting. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your shots

Mike,

thanks a lot for your kind and motivating compliments.
As I am just a newbie, I have a lot to learn and experimenting.

Cheers,

Stefan

Very nice shots indeed!

I like the first picture where you have a blurred for ground and a blurred back ground, really focusing the attention on the sharp flowers in the middle.
