sorry, just not sure what that is supposed to be.
It's a poppy. It was a bit far away for my 20mm
Andy, how did you get the focus to be the way you did? Is this the post processing miracle work of some kind of focus point software? I do like the selective color of that poppy against the black and white very much.
It's all in post processing. I have FX Photo Studio for MAC and one of it's options is radial blur. You can choose where the focus is to be plus how much is in focus. I then pulled it into Elements, did a B&W conversion in Silver Efex Pro then bought the colour out of the poppy in Elements by simply rubbing out the B&W layer where the poppy is. Glad you like it. It's not perfect so i may have another go at some point.
FX Photo Studio is available as a iPhone app and a proper Mac program. Click here for details.
Thanks Andy, I appreciate your explanation and the details! I'm holding back on more pping... Actually this morning I woke up and started thinking about wanting to simplify things by using Snapseed on an iPad2 that I don't have!
Snapseed is really good. I have it on the iPhone and from what i have seen on Youtube, it works really well on the iPad. It's cheap too!!! It's the iPad that's the expensive bit!!!!!
Very cool photo Andy!
Do you mean buying the ipad? Coz snapseed is universal
Thanks Armanius :smile:
What other tablets can you get it for Sue?
