Teasels, Stanton Drew, in the Chew Valley, south of Bristol; 1 Aug 2013.
I’ve restored the pale blues of the few petals remaining at the apex of the left hand flower, but I think a larger image is needed to fully appreciate this.
Click onto the image to open a larger version in a separate window – recommended.
Technique: D700 with 70-300 Nikkor lens at 260mm; 200 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2’s Pinhole preset, and selective restoration of colour.
ARCHIVE STILL LIFE
This is a new category on this blog – Archive Still Life studies. The Still Life definition will certainly be followed loosely – e.g. some studies may only have been made “still” by the split second opening of the camera’s shutter – and my objective will be to use as many different types / genres of subject matter as possible. Some images will be Minimalist and, in general, I try to make simpler images, rather than cramming them with visual content.
Some new Still Life studies will (hopefully!) continue to appear.
