Zooming Sunflowers - Explored 7/29/2012

    Newer Older

    Happy Sliders Sunday!

    I didn't have to look back far in my archives to find a photo for this week's post. I've posted the original in the comments below. I processed this image in PicMonkey by first applying a slight HDR effect. Then I applied Focal Zoom, but instead of stopping with one application, I applied the Focal Zoom a second time to enhance the zoom effect even further.

    I actually tried this effect in camera this morning at the Sunflower Field but couldn't get my exposure right.

    Grinter Sunflower Field,
    Along US Hwy 24-40 (near Stillwell Road and 246th Street),
    NE of Lawrence,
    Leavenworth County, KS.

    GAPHIKER, David Sebben, and 4 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Awesome! Just drove out to a well known sunflower field in Hudson, Colorado! I was surprised how shot they were still! Definitely a few weeks out from being in full bloom!
