Day 17: Pine Cones

Before:


Manual setting; f/5.6; exp. 1/60; ISO 400; shade; at 112 mm on 8-135mm lens

After:



I just cropped it in slightly, adjusted levels slightly. Then I select out the background and gave it a slight gaussian blur, and that's it. This was shot indoors, by the doorway, so quite a bit of light was coming in. I wanted to shoot in manual, but thought it still come out somewhat overexposed even when the meter said "OK."

Thanks for all the feedback on yesterday's posts! I really appreciate it! The photos I get right now of my children can be few and far between, and getting your opinions on the treatment of the photos is very helpful!

Ok, this is one of those times I like the first one better. I like seeing all the pinecones, giving context to the photo. So...kudos to you for seeing the shot in camera;)
