hit and run

Or up and run.

 

Upped! Now? Run!

    Yes. Heh.

    The lens gets that narrow depth of field and highlights the single aster standing there with the others hazily in the background. The processing gets the tones and the colours. This is how it looked straight out of the camera - quite pretty, actually. But I'm unable to leave this kind of thing alone so tweaked it in various ways - upping the shadows, making the red a little dirtier, and so on.

    This is where people start saying 'Oh, I much prefer the original.'

    Heh, people shmeople. The original is nice - beautiful - but it doesn't glow. Screw SOOC. I much prefer SOOP. Also? That up there ... WAY UP THERE. That's much moar "harold" - the one above could be anyone's. Heh. Anyone with a nice DSLR and a 1.4 *drool*. Also? Dirty knees, I'm thinking.
