hi squirl

how did you took those pictures? To me, it seems like you deleted the dark background to make it black.

I was trying to figure my way out so i used the magic wand tool in PS to select the black portion of the picture. I then use paint brush to pain the selected part black. It comes out pretty neat.

Hey squirl, are you sure you don't work for PIXAR. #1 is so perfect it almost looks computer generated, even the pimple looks perfect:G...

thanks for the comments, all... no Hiroshi, i don't work for Pixar, though it might be fun! i shot these by placing the leaves on a black fabbric background, then went over the images using the burn tool in PS to completely black out the background (black cloth is never perfectly black) and eliminate any little imperfections (lint specks, etc.). the pics were shot in natural light from a tripod. the colors are pretty much what the leaves look like, though i did do some minor tweaknig with levels and curves. this is about as close as i get to 'major' PP work... normally i prefer to leave my images as close to what i saw as possible, and clean them up only as much as needed to make a nice print... and i do believe the first one of these will wind up getting printed... i think it'd make a striking 8x10, or perhaps even larger....

I agree, it will make a wonderful addition to any wall.
