Daffodil

Daffodill
Open in Photoshop.  Auto contrast, auto color, auto tone–hey, that’s weird.  The auto tone made the blossoms look great, but the background look blue.  So, then I masked out the blossom and used the auto tone on that, but only used the auto contrast and auto color on the background, with just a hint of desaturation.

I love daffodils.  They’re my favorite flower, even though generally I’m not a huge fan of yellow.  But on daffodils, I make an exception.  I’m usually disappointed in my attempts at daffodil photography (they never seem to want to face the camera the right way) but I think I like this shot.  It looks cheerful, like a daffodil should.  🙂

Red Tulip

Red Tulip Macro
Okay, so this has been fiddled with, but not that much.  I masked out the blossom and upped the vibrance and saturation by 10 each.  Then I lowered the saturation for everything else by 40-something.

I really like the striation on the petals between the red and almost-beige parts.  I thought it was interesting.

It’s also not a standard tulip.  It’s some fancy breed with funny petals, but it’s still a tulip.
