Digital Darkroom. I started with the usual adjustments to contrast, highlights, and shadows. I then used a brush on the actual flowers themselves, increasing texture and clarity. Had I made these adjustments globally it would have added detail in the blurry leaves.
WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh. This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
