For man, as for flower and beast and bird, the supreme triumph is to be most vividly, most perfectly alive. -David Herbert Lawrence
What I like about this photo above is the way the flowers seemingly transition from perfection in the front to faded glory in the rear.
Yesterday was grey and ugly all day, which is great for garden pics. I decided to give 645 Pro another try after the recent update. These are a couple of the images I was happy with.
Both of these are unedited shots from 645 Pro. I’ve been putting off that review because I wasn’t happy with the app and the pictures I was getting with it weren’t very exciting. It looks like the update may have made a difference.
We have a few opening up around the yard now.
I tried something different here by blending an NIR version with one I edited in Snapseed. I had like 7 different versions of this image, but this is my favorite.
Yesterday I bought an app that was on sale and had a lot of good reviews called FX Photo Studio. After a few minutes exploring it, I felt like a sucker because its filled with 20MB of fluff. There are a lot of filters, but I found like 7 that I might actually use. There are hardly any adjustment sliders to edit your photos, so I wouldn’t call this an editor. I’m not impressed at all to be honest and I’d save your dollar if its still on sale for that price. If, however, you are a teenage girl, you might like this app because of all the cheesy butterfly or flower frames.
This image was created with the Symmetry Vertical filter. It basically copies the left half of the image and flips it to make a symmetrical image. There are 3 symmetry filters that might make for some interesting creations, but I don’t know if I’m going to keep this 20MB app on my phone just in case I want to use one of them once a month.
The first bulb in the garden has already opened up. I forget which one this is, but it looks cool. The daffodils are looking like they’ll open any day now. Apparently watching them out my window isn’t speeding up the process.
