View Full Version : Messing with a cactus??

02-13-2011, 09:16 PM
I went to the local conservatory today and one of my faves was a shot straight down on a barrel cactus. I liked the look/symmetry. I was going to move the blue sign but staff did not agree.:sad: Once I put the pic on screen I thought it I could snazz it up a little with some vignetting (something I've never tried before this). I think it came out kinda neat! ('cept for the sign.) next time i will wait until I'm alone.:thumbup:

it did turn out neat. Too bad about the rigid staff. I wonder if it's possible to clone that out?

Yup too bad about that sign - still a well caught shot tho.

What a cool pattern. Too bad the staff was so uncooperative that they couldn't temporarily move the sign while you take the picture.

Very cool capture!

It does have a beautiful geometric pattern :)

Very nicely done Aubintbay. The vignetting does do it well, even with the sign.

I like it.

love the angle on this...

did a very quick clone in the shop, you could probably do better if you spent longer working on it.

Thank you all! I had a bit of fun with this.
Richard.... nice PP. Makes a big difference without the bright blue sign in there!

Very cool pattern and the sign gone definitely enhanced the photo.

It is definetely better without the sign.
