I tried to shoot another macro but wanted to use a different light. A bunch of paper was used – you can see the edges and lines of the paper.
A white LED was the light source from the left and a laser pointer was used from the top and aimed between the paper.
In post processing I used the tonal contrast filter from Nik Color Efex. This enhanced the edges and enhanced the abstract effect of the picture.
I can imagine this quite good on a wall.

I found these guys when taking a walk on the weekend. as there is a lot of details in this picture I tried to shift the focus to front section. So I added brightness to the top left corner to enhance the flare and reduced the reflections of the roofs. The background was muted by the taking the saturation to 50%. I cranked the warmth of the leaves in the left lower corner up 20%, just enough to recreate what I saw that moment.

If you ever wanted to know what the tops of screws look like then check out this macro. I reconfigured my retroadapter to f/16 and used a flash for the first time (with a soft box top and a white cloth as a reflector on the other side). A little bit too much sharpness, but I love it.

Blood for Blood: HDRs in a lost place

Lost and abandoned places are wonderful if you want to shoot HDRs. HDRs are a nightmare if there are people in the shot. So there has to be some postprocessing in lightroom and photoshop.

How is the view?
