milk star by jerome

milk star

Milchstern, milk star - that is the name of this flower here in this country. It has settled in the garden meadow by itself and has been blooming every spring for several years.
Beautiful - and beautifully processed.

Yesterday, I wished to see flowers from your meadow, and here it is! How did you accomplish this dreamy image? Did you make a composite? How very lovely.

@jyokota Thank you for your kind words, Junko!
In this shot, I put emphasis on a small depth of field. This gives the picture a certain gentleness. In this case I thought it was good. It shouldn't become a superficial manner.
For the subsequent processing of my pictures, I basically have at least a vague idea of the expression it should have. So here too. For this flower I intended a colour tone from the contrasting colours yellow-blue. For me, a nice tone of warm and cold. The blue should have a tinge of purple and turquoise. For this purpose I played with different filters.
Playing with different expressions can change my original intentions. Sometimes coincidences lead me in a different direction. Basically, I like to keep myself open to various options, remain receptive, attentiv and accessible to the unplanned. For me it is a stimulating journey in the world of colours and shapes. On the way I can encounter something that I did not expect. It's always nice to discover something new.

I too have to say dreamy. The complementary colours work well, but then, hey, you knew they would.

Very beautiful

Your experimentation has been richly rewarded
May 10th, 2020  
@Jerome thank you for the detailed explanation. So does your original have those vertical lines behind the main flower, or does that come in through the filters?
May 10th, 2020  
@jyokota The vertical lines in the background were created when taking the picture, no adding later. In this case, I didn't change the shapes, just the colours and the light-dark conditions. I brightened the picture and reduced the contrast between light and dark. I trimmed the edge a bit to better position the main motif, the flower.

Wow, it's like a watercoloured picture ­čś▓

So fresh and uplifting. And I love to read your answers to Junko's questions and hear your philosophy behind arriving at your final worked image. You have an amazing ability to make all the good decisions for each different scene.
May 10th, 2020  
@jerome -- thank you for the explanation! I learn so much from you and your photography.
May 11th, 2020  
@jyokota You are welcome! I also always learn. Otherwise I would only produce. I always find mutual exchange important. It is mutual learning.

@helenhall Thank you for your kind words, Helen.
I try, I search - sometimes the result is better, sometimes worse.
For me, the process is as important as the result. A lot depends on your personal attitude. Own experiences and learning from others are the basis. My art studies help me. I think the way to a photo should get a lot more attention and be documented. It would make it clearer what an image actually is.

Dreamy.
