Reblogged from The Monochrome Muse | See this portrait in black and white and read why I approached a total stranger and asked if I could take a photograph of him for the 100 Perfect Strangers project by The Girl Who Clicked.
Scraping in just in time with this week’s photo for the Weekly Photo challenge – Intricate Still experimenting with the Fujifilm X30 – this photo of intricate petals and stamens was taken using the macro setting Slowly, slowly, were getting to like one another that little X30 and me!
Edited in Impression with ‘Turnerlight’
The Topaz Impression plug-in has been sitting on my computer, in Lightroom, unused for quite some time. Today, to keep my mind off a rather uncomfortable result of root canal treatment yesterday, I played around with a photo I took of cherry blossoms on the tree outside the dental surgery. Discomfort or not, I did not miss the opportunity to whisk out the Fujifilm X30 from my handbag and fire off a few shots of the gorgeous pink blooms.
Quite a nice painterly result produced I feel, how about you?
