Amazing detail as ever. Guava your photo's always have a very unique finish to them. How do you create the "guava look"
The non-technical explanation is "a sprinkling of Guava fairydust"
I sometimes use Photomatix for tonemapping and also sometimes will use LucisArt (as here) in my workflow. (^___^)
This photo "Concrete and Flowers" is from 3 exposures, but Photomatix could not give me the effect that I wanted. I manually blended the 3 exposures, added a slight Whyeth filter in LucisArt. Then added another layer set to Multiply and reduced the opacity until I was happy. I added extra saturation in the flowers to add depth. A few other small adjustments and that's about it.
ahh just as I suspected, the classic fairydust method
I love this shot and i don't think i left a comment when i saw it on flickr. But it is very well composed with the 'S' shape sneaking through the shot leading the eye. Lovely.
