One Four Challenge – March Week 2


It is time for Robyn’s One Four Challenge for March Week 2.

For this series I picked a photo I took of a dahlia.  I thought I would see what I could do with a macro flower.  I usually keep them pretty close to my original photo because I like to keep my florals as close to natural as I can.  So it will be interesting to see what I come up with for this dahlia.  My the original photo is shown on the right.


Week 2 Version

Here are a couple of the basic steps I took.

  1. Altered the correction for my lens.
  2. Cropped this photo.
  3. Added a lot more red to the second layer of petals.
  4. Enhanced the contrast.
  5. Enhanced the vibrancy a little bit.
  6. Added a little clarity.
