Peeling Paint

In this #photo I tried to contrast the peeling paint with the soft out-of-focus greenery behind. Taken wide-open @ f/1.4 it required a good amount of sharpening to provide the right effect.

When taking the shot I used some negative exposure compensation to darken the background slightly, whilst the flash exposed the foreground normally.

Secondly, a re-working of an image from two days ago - I've removed the distraction in the bottom right hand corner.

  1. I like the peeling paint picture, but I really think it would have been more dramatic if it was a close-up. Just a thought!
