Focus #2

The difference from yesterday’s image is subtle.. but important. (Actually, they are two different images – rather than an alternative treatment of the same image).

I’ve changed the focal point in each shot.

Yesterday, the snowdrops in the background were in focus. Having the foremost snowdrop out of focus distracted me. I don’t really like it.

Today’s image – with the sharp foreground – is more pleasing to my eye. What do you think?

This weekend’s alternative treatment is a break from my usual black and white conversion. But you’ll need to wait until tomorrow to see what it is.

Sunlit snowdrops #2

If any flower lends itself to a black & white conversion surely it’s the snowdrop.

Admittedly, this image loses the warm tones from the sunlight, but it retains a purity and elegance that is delightful.
