    I only see changes in contrast and tonality. I maybe prefer the first - more delicate tones in the geese.

    Yep.
    It's the first thing that came to mind when I saw version 1 - "The geese need more contrast".

    Sorry Keith, I can't agree with you on this one.

    Re: Blends

    I understand what you like about the delicate tones Keith, but I was afraid of the whole image being too milky when it is printed. I might change my mind when I print it. I was going for a delicate interpretation, but it seemed like it needed a good black to anchor the image.
    When I uploaded the first one and then went away for an hour or so, I came back and like Michael I thought it needed some pop.

    This is from our series Beach Pattern. We like the minimalistic content. We like walking a quiet beach (the ocean is very noisy but is not felt that way) .

    All these photo are taken with a 100mm Macro lens (either FF or 1.6x crop).

    For the fun of it: The bubbles show the reflections of the photographer (even after some blur).

    Wow Uwe,
    You've certainly been busy while I've been away. Love the sunflower and in particular the way you framed the shot with the sunflower peaking up above the leaf on the right. The sky blending really works here.

    We love Sunflower fields and we found one in prime state. We think they work with some styling using Texture Blending.

    Re: Blends

    "Amongst The Trees"

    Another iPhone shot from a park in Prague. This one was processed using Focal Point 2 to add the depth of field effect. Most of my shots with the iphone and the Hipstamatic app look so good right out of the phone, that I get lazy and don’t work on them as I usually do. The blur in this effect helps to define the lamp post. I also toned it slightly with another background layer.

    Tall Trees On The Hillside

    Another shot out the car window one evening. The headlights were lighting up the foreground and the high ISO of 2500 gave the interesting grain structure.

    Thanks Keith, it sure makes for something interesting to start with. I sometimes end up blending a couple of shots together, usually taken moments apart as is the above shot.

    This is part of a series of “Obscure Tree” shots that I am working on. It was shot in Yellowstone Park one foggy morning.
