Hi Kent,

Young, I was repeated very often by the lovely granny living
next door: "One must take his pleasure seriously!"

I think you must have met her, since I see that your
"Just for fun" picture is serious photography in my book…

Congratulations! This is pure beautiful imagery!

Thanks for sharing,

I agree completely, though I've not met the granny next door!

Thanks so much. I hope you like the original as well, but my "just for fun" version is mostly due to me playing around with new software I recently got--OnOne's Perfect Photo Suite 7. I applied the colored Daguerrotype effect in the Perfect B&W module.

Cheers.

Kent

Wow, I have to say that after seeing it I prefer the original. Really fantastic DOF, and symmetry, and color. Really beautiful. Both are great.

Don't get me wrong!

I am very happy that you posted the "original" that is just plain beautiful…
I know this flower

But the first post shows it in an unexpected way and that is cooool!

Please, do me a favour:
Don't ask me which one is the best?
I would be very embarrassed!

Thank you for sharing both!

Thanks again. Yes, I was struck by that particular effect after playing around with several others. I quite like it.

Here's another fun tidbit. I took that picture while a couple a rooms down from my "studio." I recently got that CamRanger gadget and have been having a blast shooting wirelessly tethered from my iPad and laptop. My studio is a spare second story bedroom, but with a floor that's just a little bouncy. Since this was a 1/5 sec exposure, I wanted to be sure the plant and tripod remained as steady as possible. So I composed the shot, retired down the hall with my laptop, and made numerous exposures from the computer--with virtual complete camera control. Each exposure pops up on the monitor and allows critical examination of exposure and focus for needed correction. I can even put it in live view and fine tune the focus as needed.

Great capture Kent. I like them both but lean toward the original. Interesting effect on the daguerreotype though.

Thanks, John. I really think the "dag" effect image is amazingly beautiful. I say that taking no credit other than applying the canned effect and tweaking the strength a bit. Luckily, this flower made a good subject for that particular effect.

Beautiful photos. I like both of them, the colors in the second and also the way you did the first one you posted.
